Louisiana Enterprise Ability Development


Formerly known as Free Enterprise Week, LEAD (Louisiana Enterprise Ability Development) is a Nicholls State University program designed to teach high school seniors about the private enterprise system, entrepreneurship and what economic growth means to our democratic form of government. This program heightens the awareness and involvement of Louisiana’s youth and the free enterprise system in our region.

In it’s 34th year, Nicholls State University will be hosting LEAD July 20-26, 2014. For sponsorship information, contact Laura Valenti (laura.valenti@nicholls.edu).
