BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Parish School System held a dedication ceremony for the Eva Legard Center for Coastal and Environmental Studies on Tuesday, July 19 at The Water Campus.

The program is “in partnership with LSU to give specialized knowledge, skills and resources to create a project-based outdoor model to engage students in a STEM-focused environment.”

“We believe that this is going to be a model for future focus choice schools in our city,” said Sito Narcisse, superintendent of East Baton Rouge Schools. “More importantly, it’s going to be a model for the country to show how you create partnerships between industry partners.”

The goal is to give an instructional model that increases student awareness of their environment and expands the pipeline of future scientists and researchers.
