15 Outstanding New Orleanians

Annually since 1987, YLC selects a group of outstanding New Orleanians who serve as Role Models by actively contributing to the betterment of the Greater New Orleans region. These individuals are an inspiration to YLC’s young professional members and to the community at large.

We are excited to introduce you to the 15 outstanding members of YLC’s 2018 Role Model Class! YLC will honor these distinguished individuals at the 32nd Annual YLC Role Model Awards Gala on Saturday, September 8 at the Orpheum Theater.

Each year’s group of honorees is selected by a committee including members of the YLC Board of Directors and past YLC Role Model Award recipients. Individuals are selected based on significant contributions to their field of work, to their community, and to New Orleans as a whole. Notably, a person can only receive the honor of YLC Role Model once in his or her lifetime.
