Two Shreveport women who met in a public relations class at LSU have launched a branch of the Cinderella Project in Shreveport. The goal is to collect donated prom dresses this month for underprivileged high school girls who might otherwise not be able to afford a glitzy, high-dollar dress. Co-director Ashley Busada said in its first year in Shreveport, the nonprofit organization will give away dresses to about 130 juniors and seniors at Fair Park High School.

A Shreveport-based digital technology firm is set to launch a platform that will transform the way people make online comments and follow discussions across the Web. Logic Nation’s president Bart Bordelon says online posts will become orderly and informed once the technology rolls out early next year.
"We've actually changed the way people will react to the information and their commenting systems," Bordelon said. "We've fixed a 10-year-old problem on the Web, and brought order to chaos with discussion."
