The Annie Awards

The Annie Awards - Annie Awards

Established in 1998 in honor of the late Southeastern Louisiana University Administrator Anne Ferguson, these awards honor women who excel in their respective realms of expertise. Whether as business professionals, educators, community volunteers or otherwise, we will celebrate the women who are setting the pace for our region's future.

Help us honor the women who work in excellence and have a true servant's heart for our community. Click here to submit your digital nomination of a deserving woman in Tangipahoa Parish.
