For Angela Cring, the impact of the recent LAGCOE Education and Innovation Summit might have been reflected in one changed mind.
Cring, executive director of the Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition, said the programs offered in last week's off-year meeting — LAGCOE's signature, biennial event itself is scheduled for Oct. 24-26, 2017 — included a two-hour, multi-interactive learning station as well as LITE Center technology that attracted almost a hundred Lafayette Parish seventh- and eighth-graders in the GEAR UP program that prepares youngsters for college.
Displaced oilfield workers are invited to a free expo Oct. 27 in Lafayette that will offer guidance aimed at helping them regain jobs in the energy industry.
