Nunez Community College

Nunez Community College

Nunez Community College is located in the town of Chalmette, in St. Bernard Parish, east of New Orleans, in Louisiana. Its full name is Elaine P. Nunez Community College; it was named for the deceased wife of former Louisiana State Senate President Samuel B. Nunez.[1]

The school was formed by the 1992 merger of Elaine P. Nunez Technical Institute and St. Bernard Parish Community College. As a result, it offers both academic and vocational classes, a situation which is unusual within Louisiana. In 2005 it was heavily damaged by flooding due to Hurricane Katrina. [2] However, it was able to resume classes on January 25, 2006.

Nunez and his former rival and successor as senator, Lynn Dean, also of St. Bernard Parish, are honorary members of the Nunez Community College Foundation.
