Senator Mary Landrieu submitted letter to President Obama recommending ambassadorship
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — Just three days ago Senator Mary Landrieu submitted a letter to President Obama recommending one of our local attorney's Warren Perrin for an ambassadorship to a Francophone nation for his many efforts in keeping the Acadian culture and history alive throughout our community. He is the longtime president of the council for the development of french in Louisiana.
"It was a fast thirty years of promoting french in Louisiana and the United States and the international community. It gave me the opportunity to do so many wonderful things representing Louisiana," says Warren Perrin, local attorney and conservator of french heritage.
And he has no intentions of stopping his efforts any time soon. In three weeks he will be in Maryland representing Louisiana in it's Acadian heritage. He is also in works with a professor at UL working on funding to start archeological digs around the Acadiana area to find out more about the first generation of Acadian settlers here in south Louisiana.
