Ebarb student recognized for his leadership in his school and community | Business
A student from Ebarb High School is the latest to be honored by Chesapeake Energy in its Discovering Tomorrow's Leader's Contest.
16-year-old Samuel Laroux was selected from more than 70 nominations submitted by parents, teachers, principals and classmates. He, alone, received ten nominations. Samuel was recognized for his leadership qualities within his school and community.
As part of the contest, Chesapeake also donated $1,000 work of equipment to Ebarb High School.
Jennifer Voisin, Chesapeake’s Senior Coordinator – Public Affairs, surprised Samuel at an afternoon assembly with a framed certificate to honor his efforts. Voisin noted several of Samuel's accomplishments including his involvement in FFA and treasurer of 4-H. Rita Winn-Lott, Chesapeake’s Administrative Assistant, presented principal Darrin Dyess with a brand new iPad and Netbook.
Samuel was selected by the Sabine Chamber of Commerce based on qualities of leadership, character, volunteerism and a sense of community. He is now eligible to win one of two laptop computers at a banquet at the conclusion of the Discovering Tomorrow’s Leaders contest.
Discovering Tomorrow’s Leaders began in Sabine Parish Sept. 7 and will span an eight-week period with winners being chosen each week. The winners will be presented with framed certificates recognizing their efforts as a young leader, and Chesapeake will donate $1,000 in needed equipment and supplies to each winner’s school.
