Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities

“PRIME TIME has proven to be a catalyst for literacy advancement across the state of Louisiana and increasingly, across the Gulf South. The program’s additional focus on teacher development, for Shell, is an investment in its future workforce. It takes collaborative efforts and the commitment of both industry and academia to educate and train the workforce of the future. For this reason, Shell is pleased to support the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities’ PRIME TIME programs that enhance teacher skills and student literacy.”
