Association recently honored seven Delgado alumni at the annual Circles of Excellence Outstanding Alumni dinner. Andrea's Restaurant was filled with family, friends, faculty, administrators and alumni, all there to support our honorees. 

     Mr. James Hines, 2008 Circles recipient, provided the invocation. Guest speaker Gil McGregor with the New Orleans Hornets Broadcast Team gave an empowering speech which reinforced the importance of being involved and giving back to your community.  Honorees were presented with awards by Dr. Ron D Wright, Chancellor of Delgado and Ms. Tanza Sterling, Alumni Association President. A video of the honorees, produced by Delgado TV production students, offered everyone an insight as to how Delgado impacted each of their lives.

     The honorees were nominated by faculty, staff, and alumni, for their outstanding work in their field and for their contributions to the community.  They were chosen by a selection committee comprised of alumni, faculty and staff.  The 2010 Circles of Excellence Outstanding Alumni are: Nancy Arceneaux, Lisa George, Charles Miller, III, Joseph Omner, Zenobia Pressley, Martina Musmeci Salles and Abby Porché-Zachery.
