More than 100 people from a broad spectrum of backgrounds participated in the Louisiana House Learning Center Planning Workshop July 18, 2000, in the LSU Design Building. Dr. Claudette Reichel, project coordinator, set the stage for the workshop and defined the criteria for the Louisiana House project.
Participants broke into five groups to lay their issues on the table (actually, it was to stick them on paper), make stump speeches, and cast votes according to importance and consistency with Louisiana House project criteria.
Group delegates shared the results of their issues sessions. Armed with a broadened perspective of the issues involved, participants returned to the trenches for two rounds of idea gathering – this time on identifying and accomplishing tasks needed to bring the project to fulfillment.
These included design for the house and landscape, marketing and fund raising methods, and operating and delivering educational programs through the learning center.
The project leadership is grateful for the time and energy devoted by so many professionals, both within and outside the LSU AgCenter, toward achieving the goals of the workshop.
