“Good Students Gala” Honors Female Media Professionals

Honorees Peggy Scott Laborde and Nell Nolan with Emily Degan

The Childhood and Family Learning Foundation held its “Good Kids + Good Health = Good Students Gala” at the St. Charles Avenue home of Jennifer and Fred Heebe on October 9. A philanthropic organization focused on helping students receive the care they need to graduate, the foundation hosted the cocktail reception to honor women who have achieved respect and popularity in the news media. Honorees included Margarita Bergen, Renette Dejoie Hall, Angela Hill, Peggy Scott Laborde, Maria Muro, Nell Nolan, Nicondra Norwood, Margaret Orr and Sally-Ann Roberts. Proceeds of the event went to the Coordinated Care for the Whole Child Program.

Over 200 guests enjoyed an evening of formal elegance, with entertainment by vocalist Kara Klein and pianist Kristin Alvarado. Fresh flowers, original art and antiques adorned the Heebe home, along with champagne, wine and a buffet donated by Fleur de Lis Catering. Each honoree had the opportunity to speak to the crowd regarding their support of education and the influence education has had on their lives and careers. Lauren Thom, the creator of Fleurty Girl, produced specially ordered T-shirts for the honorees to commemorate the occasion.
