ATL Scores Two Years in a Row With National Chapter Service Awards

Every year the LSU Alumni Association hosts a chapter development workshop and recognition banquet attended by board members and key volunteers from accross the country. This year's gathering had participants from San Diego to New York City, and LSU Atlanta had three of its board members attend to learn and share.

Last year, Del Moon received one of the annual Chapter Leadership awards, the first given to an Atlanta volunteer in nearly ten years.  And last week, LSU Atlanta President Steve Ory was honored with the same award.  LSUAA congratulated Ory for steering LSU Atlanta to new levels of activity, communication and scholarship fundraising.  "Atlanta is our third largest alumni base outside of Louisiana," LSUAA Vice President Jason Ramezan said. "We are very pleased to see that the chapter has progressed so well and is now one of our stronger chapters in the country."
