Welcome Chris Domingue

Chris Domingue welcomes a new opportunity in his position as Nicholls’ greenhouse coordinator — helping Bridge to Independence students develop their horticultural skills.

Since his teens, Domingue has fostered his love of plants through employment in various horticulture and landscaping roles. Now, he will use his love of plants to help Bridge students in the Arlen Cenac Sr. Greenhouse, where they will grow herbs for Chef John Folse Culinary Institute students.

“We are going to be able to teach them to be gardeners,” Domingue says. “But more than that, they will get a sense of doing something that is worth doing. They are fulfilled.”

Bridge coordinator Dr. Mary Breaud says Domingue will be working with Bridge students completing greenhouse internships.

“This will increase the exposure of this project and assist culinary in supply of some herbs for their classes and events,” she says. “We are very excited to be working with Chris. We can’t wait to get started.”

Bridge to Independence assists students with intellectual disabilities or autism spectrum disorder with academic, job and social skills. Nicholls’ program is one of over 50 programs in the United States certified by the U.S. Department of Education and the first in Louisiana.

Prior to coming to work for Nicholls, Domingue ran Paradise Landscapes in Lafayette, Louisiana for many years before passing leadership to his business partner.
