A Louisiana nonprofit aims to change that. Employees of the Louisiana Education Loan Authority or LELA have done dozens of FAFSA workshops at high schools across the state in recent weeks. LELA's assistant vice president of marketing, Joni Leggio,&#160;said the FAFSA priority deadline at many colleges is April 1,&#160;and now is the right time to complete the form.<p>“It goes hand in hand with filling out your taxes," Leggio said.
