BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Scotlandville community center is open again with new leadership.

Gregory Handy, a retired Exxon-Mobil employee, will serve as interim director of the Jewel Newman Community Center.

The center reopened over the weekend after fire inspectors cleared it.

Handy replaces Carl Slaughter, who is appealing his termination.
