Boucvalt to serve as Golden Meadow-Fourchon Tarpon Rodeo Admiral

Golden Meadow – Fourchon Tarpon Rodeo officials announced last week that Trey Boucvalt has been named Admiral for the 70th Annual Tarpon Rodeo that will take place July 5th, 6th, and 7th at Moran’s Marina in Fourchon.

Boucvalt, a current resident of Austin, TX, has lifelong ties to the River and Bayou parishes. He spent his youth in the River parishes and most of his adult life on the Bayou before moving to Austin. Boucvalt is married to the former Brandi Fryoux for 23 years. They have 2 children Lex (16 yrs) and Ori (15 yrs).

Boucvalt has 2 siblings, Jason Boucvalt and Allison Boucvalt Froeba, and is the son of the late Lawrence Boucvalt, Jr. and Kathryn Denoux Boucvalt, who both loved the Golden Meadow – Fourchon area and have made many memories at the rodeo.

Upon accepting the position of Admiral, Boucvalt said, “This is a dream come true. I cannot think of a greater honor.”

Boucvalt enjoys extracurricular activities such as hunting, fishing, golf and attending any sporting event. He currently serves on the LSU Tiger Athletic Foundation Board of Directors and on the St. Michael’s Catholic Academy Board, as a trustee.

In 2005, Boucvalt was elected as the Louisiana State Young Alumnus of the year. He also just recently signed a letter of intent to purchase the LA Tour Golf Community, which he plans to follow John Brady’s vision and dream and fully develop the property and make it one of the most prestigious communities to live and visit in south Louisiana.

Boucvalt currently CEO of ES&H, has enjoyed success in the Environmental and Industrial Services sectors. He formed ES&H in 1994 with just 2 employees and now has over 300 employees in the Gulf of Mexico Region. Boucvalt/ES&H was a major factor in the Hurricane Katrina and Deep Water Horizon clean-ups.

Boucvalt is very excited and humbled about the opportunity. “I am blessed to represent a fun, family event as Admiral of 2018, which I have participated in my entire life. I encourage all families to come and enjoy the fun and make as many memories as they can and seize the moment. Please come and enjoy our south Louisiana hospitality of great food and music under the air-conditioned tent and of course fishing. We have many categories to enter and offer great prizes.”

Rodeo officials also announced that local artist Christy Boutte has been commissioned to put this year’s artwork for the rodeo that will be used to produce shirts, memorabilia, and the official rodeo book and poster.

The Rodeo events officially start on July 4th at La Tour Golf course with all proceeds going to the scholarship program. For more information on the golf tournament, contact Johnny Friloux at
