Lafayette General Health Clinical Implementation Specialist Stacy Duhon, RN, lost her daughter, Alana Brooke, to a drunk driver in February of 2018.

Shortly after Alana’s death, Stacy partnered with the Lafayette General Foundation to develop a scholarship fund in her daughter’s memory. The scholarship is funded by Lafayette General Health employees through the health system’s employee giving program.

Today Stacy, in partnership with the Foundation, announced the inaugural award of the Alana Brooke Duhon Memorial Scholarship to Amie Vincent and Holly Necaise, two recent North Vermilion High School graduates.

The scholarship presentation was held in conjunction with Sudden Impact, a program launched by Louisiana State Police that is designed to teach teens how to prevent fatalities and injuries from driving impaired, distracted and/or unrestrained.

Every summer, Sudden Impact is offered at no cost to the teenage children of Lafayette General Health employees.

This morning, Stacy shared Alana’s story with the group of teens before presenting the scholars with their award.
