Iberia Parish Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner
The Evangeline Area Council, Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has announced that Patrick Norris, founder of Norris International, has been selected to receive the 2019 Iberia Parish Distinguished Citizen Award. He will be honored at the annual awards dinner on Thursday, May 9th at Hampton Inn & Suites (400 Spanish Towne Boulevard) in New Iberia, starting with the reception at 6:00 p.m. and followed by the dinner program at 7:00 p.m.
For 22 years, the Distinguished Citizen Award event has been one of the Council’s premiere events. The award is an annual recognition of those who give freely of their time and talents to improve the quality of life in Iberia Parish. Honorees are selected based on how the community has benefited from the individual’s contributions and the lasting effects those contributions have left on the community. Past recipients have included Joseph “Si” Brown, Burt Cestia, Dr. George Cousin, Bo Duhe, Phil Haney, Representative Blake Miguez, Craig Romero, Paul Schwing, Parish President Larry Richard, Mayor Freddie DeCourt and many more outstanding individuals. Those who receive the award are not necessarily Boy Scout volunteers, but rather individuals who personify what the Boy Scouts stand for – good citizenship, outstanding moral fiber with a dedication to others, and for living their lives by the Scout Oath and Law.
