Full List: LEF Pin Patrol surprises educators

Teachers across Lafayette Parish were recognized on Wednesday for their hard work.

Dozens of volunteers went around schools surprising 923 educators during the annual pin patrol.

Each person was nominated for the 2019 LEF Teacher Awards because of their impact on students and the community.

“For the teachers, it gives them the recognition they deserve,” said programs director André Arceneaux. “A lot of them work day in and day out, and they don’t get the recognition that they really should get. They impact lives, they change lives, and a lot of times, it goes unnoticed. But for us to go into their classrooms and just show them that they are appreciated, it makes a world of difference to them.”

Sixteen finalists will be chosen from the 923 and honored in an Academy Awards-style ceremony held at the Heymann Performing Arts Center, complete with red carpet interviews and live entertainment, on January 31, 2019.
