Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and gratitude, a time to acknowledge the many blessings in our lives. We at the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts wanted to take the opportunity to let you - our friends, supporters, and partners - know how thankful we are for your encouragement and confidence in all that we do. Our mission to promote the development of youth through the arts requires the support and engagement of many individuals.
"I'm so thankful that we have such a strong team in Louisiana dedicated to keeping arts in schools in a meaningful way. Without the staff of both George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts and Louisiana A+ Schools, plus the dedicated LAA+ Fellows and teachers in our LAA+ schools, our foundation would never be able to enrich the lives of so many students through the arts. We are destined to see higher test scores, fewer discipline problems and increased attendance because of the work that these hundreds of people do. My family and I will be forever grateful for their hard work."
