The LEF Teacher Awards Honor

The LEF Awards are kind of a big deal. For 22 years they’ve been rolling out the red carpet so teachers can feel like they’re at the Grammy’s.

“This is a big event for the community.” said Evan Daniels, Programs Director at the Lafayette Education Foundation, “We’ve been working on it since the beginning of the school year we’ve had over 1,085 teachers nominated for this years teacher awards and we are down to our top 16!”

The final winners for each category will be revealed on the 29th and you better get your tickets now at

“We are really looking forward to it, it’s a big night for the community for us to come together and say thank you to our teachers for all of them, dedicating their work and that they do throughout the school year and all the impact that they’ve had on us.” said Daniels, “We all have that one moment that we know that a teacher just changed their lives forever and so we just want to take this night and say thank you to all of our educators in Lafayette Parish and we hope you can make it.”

The event will be held at the Heymann Center.
