LAFAYETTE - An award was given to one Acadiana middle school.

L.J. Alleman was honored with the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award.

It is one of only 31 middle schools nationwide, and only one of seven in the state of Louisiana to receive the award.

The superintendant praised the school for its performance.

It has been 20 years since a school in Lafayette Parish received the blue ribbon status.
