CMT Empowering Education Series
In March of 2018, CMT Empowering Education partnered with Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) and Louisiana Calling to embark on an eight-stop tour featuring one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, and Louisiana native, Courtney Cole. Eight community and technical college campuses across Louisiana were selected for the tour. Admission to each concert was completely free and offered students a chance to network with industry professionals, hear success stories from local students, and enjoy music from local artists.
As part of this initiative, CMT interviewed students from each college campus featured on the tour, highlighting how education is impacting the lives of men and women across Louisiana. These videos are featured on the Real Stories page.
The Bloomberg Family Foundation, Inc.
Louisiana Calling received a sub-grant for $245,000 in 2016 as part of a Louisiana Department of Education grant from The Bloomberg Family Foundation focused on incubating, sustaining, and supporting structures and organizations dedicated to maximizing student potential in Louisiana. Louisiana Calling’s sub-grant was utilized to test “the nation’s first comprehensive marketing effort aimed at changing the paradigm of parents and grandparents regarding applied education and related job opportunities.”
