Chancellor's Breakfast Attracts More Than 300 Delgado Supporters

November 01, 2018

On Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, Delgado Community College held its annual Chancellor’s Breakfast, introducing new Chancellor William Wainwright.

Dr. Wainwright, the longtime chancellor of Northshore Technical Community College, was named interim chancellor of Delgado in September following a move by former Delgado Chancellor Joan Davis to a senior administrative position at the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) office in Baton Rouge.

A native of southwestern Louisiana, Dr. Wainwright earned his Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration at the University of New Orleans and has been involved in workforce education and economic development for his entire career.

He served as chancellor of Northshore Technical Community College since 2011 and has been with the LCTCS for 20 years.  He earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette in Criminal Justice and a graduate degree from Northwestern State University in Adult Education.

State Representative Walter J. Leger III was the guest speaker at the event at the Delgado City Park Campus Student Life Center.

More than 300 community partners and friends were joined by Delgado faculty and staff for the Chancellor’s Breakfast, which featured a breakfast buffet and presentations and conversation about the progress of Delgado towards its “Louisiana 2020” strategic goals and upcoming Centennial celebration in 2021. The college has been known by generations in the New Orleans region as an invaluable source for, as its slogan says, “Education that works!”
