As President of the Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF), managing member Alan Brackett attended the Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Corporation (LWCC) speaker series event. Together with agent and business partner’s, LWCC donated $65,000 to the Louisiana Bar Foundation Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program, the state chapter of a national organization that awards scholarships to the children of Louisiana workers who have been killed or permanently and totally disabled in an accident compensable under a state or federal Workers’ Compensation Act or law.
As Alan said at the event, “LWCC is our longest standing partner and fundraiser for the LBF Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program. The permanent disability of a family member at work can devastate a family. Kids’ Chance scholarships help stabilize those families and ensure the children of those workers obtain a higher education.”
With the support of LWCC the LBF has been able to award 331 scholarships in the amount of $825,100 since its inception in 2004.
