SL CLASS of '77 to offer scholarships

SL CLASS of '77 to offer scholarships

For their 30th class reunion, the South Lafourche High School Class of '77 didn't just want to party; they wanted to express their gratitude for the bayou community in which they grew up and for the school that provided a solid personal and academic foundation that allowed them to enter the work force with confidence and competence.

The class looked at two key educators in their schooling whose daughters - Kelly Rabb and Suzanne Hebert - were both members of the class. They decided to start two $500 scholarships - one in honor of John Rabb that would go to someone planning to pursue social services in college and one in honor of South Lafourche's founding principal, George Hebert, to be given to someone who is a "Quiet Hero," as determined by the faculty at South Lafourche.

For the past 8 years, the Class of '77 has met its commitment to give back to the community that gave it so much.
With the recent passing of Mrs. Mary Rabb who was also an educator, the class has decided to rename the scholarship to be the Mary and John Rabb Hope Scholarship.

All donations toward these scholarships can be made out to the "SL Class of 1977" and sent to: SL Class of 1977, 5513 West Ave. A, Cut Off, LA 70345 or to the Counseling Office at South Lafourche High School.
