Caddo Parish Commission

The Caddo Parish Commission has earned the highest possible bond rating from the rating agency Standard & Poor's. The AAA investment-grade rating is a first for a public body in Louisiana.

A $500,000 grant from the Caddo Parish Commission will establish a yearlong, non-credit certificate program in digital media at LSU Shreveport. Program director John Miralles says applicants must have completed high school will go through a rigorous evaluation process before being admitted to the 35-hour per week program taught by area industry professionals.
