Abandoned Schools in Tangipahoa & St. Helena Parishes Can Be Used As Creative Learning Centers

Big Zion School in Roseland, Louisiana
While riding around Tangipahoa and St. Helena Parishes I noticed a number of abandoned schools that could be used as creative learning centers. These building have rooms that can be used for libraries, art galleries, museums, meeting rooms, recreational rooms, music and dance, and small theaters.

So, why are we not using these abandoned schools for enrichment education? Could we transformed these buildings to service the community? The answer is yes, with groups, churches, association and social clubs pooling their resources together to preserve and transformed these abandoned schools into Creative Learning Centers It starts with a vision and concerned citizens who can make a difference. The lack of community resources can bring about many unwanted problems in any community.  Community Resources that include services, knowledge, equipment, and facilities. The resources can come from a variety of sources and provide all kinds of assistance.

Woodland High School in St. Helena Parish
Tangipahoa and St. Helena Parishes, need community resources for it citizens that can include after school programs, senior citizens daycare services, educational enrichment programs and other programs that is vital for our communities.

How long are we going to leave these buildings in despair? We have what it takes to revitalize the building, raise the funding and develop the programs that is need to continue to enrich our community.
