KATC is partnering with the Love Our Schools Foundation to do some major rehab work at 8 Lafayette Parish schools.

The campaign kicks off in July but before that time, volunteers and donations are needed to help make this project a reality.

KATC’s Abby Breidenbach was LIVE on Thursday, May 23 with a look at the project and to preview the first school, Lafayette Middle School. We’ll be previewing each of the eight schools leading up to the start of the campaign in July.

Two organizations, Love Acadiana and the William C. Schumacher Family Foundation say they hope this initiative will improve education in the state.

Other sponsors for the project include The Stuller Family Foundation and the Pugh Family Foundation. For more on the sponsors and founders of the project, click here.

  • Acadian Middle School
