Stand Honored with Award for Elections Work

Elections | 02/21/2019

Alex is the Marketing and Communications Director for Stand Louisiana.

We love a good surprise, earlier this month Stand for Children Louisiana was both surprised and honored to receive the prestigious President's Award from the Jefferson Chamber for our work supporting both Democrat and Republican champions for students this Fall in the Jefferson Parish School Board Elections. In fact, Stand Louisiana, along with its partners, were 6 for 6 in electing bold champions to the Jefferson Parish School Board.

Support from individuals like you allow us to identify, support and elect bold champions for students. Will you give today and help us continue this work?


While receiving an award is nice, we don’t do this work for the recognition, we do it so more kids have a chance to succeed and enjoy a more prosperous and fulfilled life. And, at Stand, we know that an elected leader who is willing to work hard for students can be the difference between a school system focused on supporting and growing students who are prepared to succeed in the world, and one that falls short of its obligation to our children.

Are we saying ‘Leadership Matters’? You bet we are! And we need your support to identify, support and elect more great leaders for kids.

Last Fall Stand went 10 for 10 electing champions to local school boards. This fall more than 45 legislative seats and all Board of Elementary and Secondary Education Seats will be on the ballot. Never before has it been more important to ensure bold leaders for kids are sent to BESE and the state house. We can do this with your help today! 

Leadership matters! Thank you in advance for standing with us to elect bold leaders for students!
