HAMMOND - The Wade Speed Memorial Scholarship at Southeastern Louisiana University was awarded
to Josh Blanchard and Shelby Brignac, both of Hammond.
The scholarship was established in memory of the late Southeastern alumnus and prominent Hammond businessman Wade Speed. Funds raised at the annual Wade Speed Golf Tournament support the scholarship that is awarded to a graduate of either Hammond High School or St. Thomas Aquinas High School, enrolled in the College of Business.
