Representatives from Eastman, Shintech, Olin, and Westlake Chemical addressed a large group of business and industry leaders recently at the North Iberville Community Center in Rosedale, La.

The topics highlighted by the company representatives included community support, growth, jobs, and sustainability.

Dale Doty, Chancellor of River Parishes Community College, which has campuses in Ascension and in Iberville Parish said that Iberville is doing a good job of funneling students into the workforce that these companies demand.

"River Parishes is for those who can do the work, but who maybe can't get started on their own," Doty said.

The event was well catered and offered lunch to all attendees. Executive Director of the Iberville Parish Chamber of Commerce Pam Boesch thanked all who participated.
