This year’s Humanities Awards luncheon was special. For the first time in decades, we brought the ceremony back to New Orleans, where more than 280 guests made 2014 our biggest award event since Katrina. Author and Aspen Institute CEO Walter Isaacson joined us to accept the 2014 Humanist of the Year award. Board members, partners, awardees and friends from across the state enjoyed the hospitality of the Audubon Tea Room. The LEH thanks our major sponsor IBERIABANK, as well as table sponsors Bellwether Technology, Ragan Green, the Historic New Orleans Collection, Metro Security, Brenda Mounier and CODOFIL, Stirling Properties, Phyllis Taylor and Union Pacific Railroad. Once again, the people and culture of Louisiana inspired the LEH staff to continue our rewarding work in service of this great state.
