NAEA Honors Jacques Rodrigue at National Convention

NAEA Honors Jacques Rodrigue at National Convention

The National Art Education Association (NAEA) presented Jacques Rodrigue, Executive Director of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, with the 2015 Distinguished Service Outside the Profession Award. This prestigious award recognizes outstanding achievement by individuals outside the field of art education and was presented during the NAEA National Convention in New Orleans last week.

NAEA President Dennis Inhulsen stated, "Jacques Rodrigue exemplifies the highly qualified art educators active in education today: leaders, teachers, students, scholars, and advocates who give their best to their students and the profession."

It was not long ago in 2012 that George Rodrigue also received the same award from the NAEA, making it an especially significant honor for Jacques and GRFA.
