     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will host global and national leaders from DXC Technology and Amazon Web Services for a cloud-computing symposium set Sept. 17.
     Sponsored by Southeastern’s College of Science and Technology and Workforce Talent Initiative, as well as the Louisiana Department of Economic Development FastStart Program, the symposium is scheduled from 2 – 3:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Student Union.
