The Franklin Volunteer Fire Department has established a scholarship fund in memory of long time fire department member E. Louis Boudreaux.

“Louis was a 20-year member of the fire department,” states Chief Chuck Bourgeois, “and he left a profound impact on everyone he came in contact with.”

The $500 scholarship is open to all seniors enrolled in the public and private schools of St. Mary Parish for studies in fire, emergency medical, nursing or related medical fields.  Applications can be obtained from the local high school guidance counselor.

The submission deadline is April 10, 2019.

“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,” Franklin Volunteer Firefighter’s President Toddy Boudreaux says.
