Dear PRC supporters:

I am thrilled to announce that our wonderful director, Patty Gay, has been selected as this year’s recipient of the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) 2011 Award for Lifetime Contribution to the Humanities.

I know that you all join me in applauding her longtime efforts in preservation and on the incredible and positive impact she has had on the city of New Orleans as well as the state of Louisiana. This is a most well-deserved honor. We have all watched her progress through these many years of devoted service and we are proud to have her as PRC’s executive director.
