Chasing the American Dream, FEMA Assistance Update, Meet the 2016 Young Heroes

Chasing the American Dream in Louisiana – Part Two (4:52) LPB’s Kelly Spires turned to the writings of 19th century French historian Alexis de Tocqueville to better understand the status of equality, community and the American Dream in Louisiana. Our state has seen two epic rainfall events this year. In part two of her series, Kelly visited Monroe to check on recovery efforts. SHARE


FEMA Assistance Update (9:25) It’s been nearly six weeks since the catastrophic floods affected 22 parishes in Louisiana. FEMA has determined flood victims who live in mobile homes should not automatically be excluded from the “Shelter at Home” flood relief program. FEMA spokesperson Ray Perez will discuss the progress and setbacks regarding federal assistance for flood victims. SHARE


Meet the 2016 Young Heroes (15:35) For over two decades, LPB has honored students who have excelled in the classroom, served their community and/or shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives. This week, we celebrate a pair of outstanding students including 2016 Louisiana Young Heroes Peyton Cudd of Glenmora and Madison Fruge’ of Moreauville. Do you know a Young Hero? The nomination process for the 2017 Louisiana Young Heroes is underway. For more information go to http://www.lpb.org/index.php/heroes/. SHARE
