Allen Garcie – LSUS – Written

To Whom It May Concern:

I was contacted recently by Mr. Alvin Walker in regards to writing a testimonial based on his experience in teaching with Louisiana State University in Shreveport’s (LSUS) Division of Continuing Education & Public Service. It is my sincere pleasure to do so.

I first met Alvin in the summer of 2004 about him teaching professional development courses with LSUS. Through our partnership with him, we were able to quickly develop a new, and much needed, Electrician’s Certificate Program as well as a successful Journeyman/Master Electrician course. Alvin consistently received high marks from his students within these programs. This was a testament not only to his abilities as an educator, but also to both his expert knowledge and how well he communicated this to others. In my opinion, and based upon the anonymous evaluations submitted by his students, Alvin is one of the most competent and professional instructors that I know.

Overall, I was very proud to have worked with Alvin as an instructor and of his service to the community through LSUS.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at my information below.  Thank you.
