LSMSA FOUNDATION CELEBRATES DONORS AT ANNUAL EVENT, PRESENTS AWARDS
Nearly 60 donors, volunteers and representatives from the faculty and administration of LSMSA attended the LSMSA Foundation’s sixth annual 1983 Society celebration held in November at Tommy’s Cuisine in New Orleans. The Foundation’s 1983 Society helps the school foster a tradition of philanthropy by recognizing its most loyal and committed supporters. Annual contributions of $1,983 or more qualify an individual or organization for membership in the 1983 Society. The event also featured the Foundation’s third annual presentation of the 1983 Society Wingspan Award for
Dedication, an award created to recognize and celebrate the dedication of individuals and organizations who demonstrate meaningful and extraordinary support for LSMSA through financial means, volunteer time, advocacy and other avenues of engagement considered to go above and beyond. This year’s award recipients were Dr. Patrick and Betsy Widhalm and Drs. Art and Sharon Williams. LSMSA alumni and siblings Dr. Jane Jee-Sun Kang (’91) and Dr. William Kang (’99) performed a piano and violin musical tribute to the Wingspan Award winners.
