Panelist Bio


Ken Ward, Ph.D
Executive Director of the Louisiana Moral & Civic Foundation

Mr. Ward has served the Louisiana Moral & Civic Foundation (LMCF) since January 1, 1976. Mr. Ward started as head of LMCF's Legal and Legislative Division, and became Executive Director of the Foundation in 1977.

The LMCF is an educational foundation that has, since 1942, sought to help people of all faiths and of no faith, to work together to make a better Louisiana. One of the areas where LMCF seeks to carry out these efforts is in the Louisiana Legislature, where Mr. Ward serves as Ethicist and Coordinator of Chaplain Services.

The founders of LMCF, even though wed to the concept of the separation of the institution of state and the institution of church, were convinced that any attempt to govern without Godly values and morality would surely fail. Further, they believed that religion and government can and must co-exist in the hearts and minds of those who make up both religion and government.

Ward has received recognition from both chambers of the Louisiana Legislature for his ethics, credibility and integrity. Prior to his involvement with LMCF, Ward served on the faculty of LSU where he received LSU’s Faculty Service Award for outstanding Leadership in Public Service. Ward published his dissertation at LSU in the area of Legislative Ethics.
