John Broussard, Natchitoches Parish
Mr. John Broussard, 4-H alumni, has been a dedicated 4-H volunteer and supporter for over 67 years. Mr. Broussard has worked tirelessly to promote, maintain, teach, and fund 4-H programming. Beyond his efforts to pioneer a 4-H auction and banquet that provided vital funds for the Natchitoches Parish 4-H program, including camp scholarships, transportation, and educational scholarships, he is also the lone pioneer in establishing a community garden that is maintained and harvested by him and a group of trustees. Furthermore, Mr. Broussard is currently working on a project with the city officials to develop property outside the local detention center to enable 4-H members to become more engaged in growing and harvesting produce. Whether it is working alongside the Junior Leaders at the Farmer's Market, grilling burgers at Achievement Day, participating in activities with state 4-H boards, or assisting 4-H members with their gardening project work, Mr. Broussard can be found smiling his southern gentleman smile and willing to tackle any task, large or small.
Please join us in welcoming Mr. John Broussard to the Louisiana 4-H Hall of Fame!
