Speaking of dinner, the Louisiana Technical College Greater Acadiana District Foundation hosted its third annual "A Taste of Success" at the Heymann Center March 31 ' a grand meal indeed. Delicious food prepared by alumni of the LTC-Lafayette Campus Culinary Arts & Occupations program, who are now serving as chefs at Acadiana restaurants, was the evening's centerpiece. In addition to the culinary entertainment, Jonathan Perry, a Gulf Area campus board member, provided a comedy show. Louisiana Style and its lead singer Andy Smith (a Teche Area Campus alumnus) supplied the musical grooves. A silent auction also featured unique items designed and fabricated by LTC students and instructors. "All that attend this wonderful annual event receive 'A Taste of Success' on so many levelsâ?¦ from the delicious food prepared by successful alumni to the wonderful silent auction items," says LTC Resource Development Director Kelli V. Horn. Keep up the great work, Kelli!
