Local student chosen to attend youth leadership forum

South Lafourche High School junior Loni Johnson was selected to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum for Medicine in New York to be held July 2017.

The program represents an opportunity for attendees to receive hands-on experience and insight from health care professionals in order to help with their future medical studies and careers. She will receive two college credits upon finishing the program.

Loni is the daughter of Hope Louviere and fiancé Edison Billiot and Jesse Johnson and wife Linda Johnson. The family is working to raise $4,000 to cover Loni’s tuition, which includes travel expenses for the program. A Gofundme account entitled Loni’s Summer NYLF for College has been set up as well as an account at Region’s bank. For more information on sponsoring Loni, contact Hope Louviere at 985-258-9676.
