The Cafa scholarship was not awarded in 2012
The CAFA Scholarship was not awarded in 2012 because there were not enough applicants.
There was a winner in 2013. I will post the information when I get the information. If you have photos and or details of the 2013 winner,
Ann Elizabeth Perret Wins 2013 CAFA Scholarship
Congratulations go out to: Ann Elizabeth "Annie" Perret, daughter of Louis & Cheryl Broussard Perret.
The Broussard Family Association submitted her name into a drawing sponsored by CAFA for a partial Scholarship to St. Anne University in Canada.
The drawing was held in St. Martinville at the Acadian Memorial Festival.
Annie Perret was the winner of a $1500.00 scholarship awarded by CAFA (Confederation des Families Acadien de la Louisiane). The Boudreaux / Boudreau Family Association and the Trahan Family each donated an additional $500.00 totaling another $1000.00 for living expenses.
Annie sent a very nice note of thanks to the Association and she came to Don's Funeral. A very fine jesture for such a youngster today. It gives you an idea of the caliber of the youngsters who win these awards.
