Centenary Grad Awarded Foreign-study Scholarship

One of our recent graduates, Elizabeth Lyles, was featured on Louisiana Public Broadcast program The State We're In. Lyles was one of eight recipients awarded foreign-study scholarships by the La Fondation Louisiane. A French and communications major, she received the Lois and John Breaux Scholarship to study at the University of Mons in Belgium.

Named in honor of former U.S. Senator John Breaux and his wife, Lois, the scholarship is given with the assistance of the French Community of Belgium and provides free tuition for the 2009-2010 academic year plus $10,000.
