BATON ROUGE – The Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) is proud to announce that Jacquelyn Schulz Craddock, Industry Sector Specialist, will serve as chair of the Leadership Baton Rouge Alumni (LBRA) Board of Directors for 2017-2018.

LBRA is an independent, nonprofit organization of more than 1,100 graduates of the Baton Rouge Area Leadership Program, which prepares professionals for local leadership positions. Through LBRA, alumni find support in addressing needs within the community and have the opportunity to connect with both current and former program participants.

Craddock is a member of the Leadership Class of 2011.

In her role at the LWC, Craddock works to facilitate sector partnerships, enhances workforce development activities and supports regional economic development initiatives. She previously worked for Louisiana State University (LSU) in public relations and development, where she successfully raised millions of dollars for the University College and Swine Palace/LSU Theatre.

“Jacquelyn’s election to the LBRA Board of Directors comes as no surprise to us, as we all have the privilege of witnessing her tremendous talents at work each day,” says Shannon Joseph, Director of Workforce Development. “Her ability to foster key relationships with our sector partners is highly effective, and we are confident that she will lead this organization’s board with the same consideration.”

Ava Dejoie, LWC Executive Director, said, “Jacquelyn is a natural leader who brings a wealth of knowledge to her position with our agency. We expect her unique skillset, coupled with her keen business acumen, to translate well into her role as board chair.”
