The Franklin Volunteer Fire Department has established a scholarship fund in memory of late, long time fire department member E. Louis Boudreaux.
"Louis was a 20-year member of the fire department and he left a profound impact on everyone he came in contact with," states Chief Chuck Bourgeois.
The $500 scholarship is open to all seniors enrolled in St. Mary Parish public schools for studies in fire, emergency medical or the nursing fields. Applications can be obtained from local high school guidance counselors. The submission deadline is April 21, 2014.
Franklin Volunteer Firefighter's President Toddy Boudreaux says, "We are proud to maintain the legacy of Louis Boudreaux where the Franklin Volunteer Firefighters will invest in a child's education in his honor."
