Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, the Angel Award program honors volunteers who do outstanding work on behalf of Louisiana’s children. To date, the annual program has resulted in statewide recognition and more than $900,000 in grants to more than 100 honorees’ charitable causes. This year, a panel of past honorees will choose eight Louisiana Angels from among the nominations. Each of the eight will receive a $20,000 grant for his or her charitable organization from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation.
Wilson is the director of the Briggs Learning for Life Center that provides after school homework assistance for 65 low income students in a public housing complex in Abbeville.
