We'd like to share with you our amazing 2022-2023 Distinguished Scholars and Inspirational Educators.

Our Distinguished Scholars have overcome obstacles and challenges to be successful in their academics, involved in their community, and serve as leaders in their school. We are so proud of them for all they have accomplished! The scholars then chose their Inspirational Educator, someone who has helped shaped them to the person they are today. We are honored to share them with you.

Many thanks to our Community Partners Hancock WhitneyThe Times of Houma/Thibodaux, and Terrebonne General Medical Center who will help us showcase and provide meaningful gifts to these students and educators for their hard work.
