For the safety of our UL Lafayette community, Dupré Library
On March 6, 2020, a ceremony at the Alumni Center was held to honor Sandra Thompson Herman and the donation of her personal papers to Edith Garland Dupré Library's Special Collections. Ms. Herman was the former director of the Atchafalaya Basin Progam and the creator of the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, for which she acted as the first secretary. The ceremony included speeches from President E. Joseph Savoie, Head of Special Collections Zack Stein, Director of the Kathleen Babineaux Blanco Public Policy Center Stephen Barnes, and several of Ms. Herman's friends and former colleagues. Ms. Herman signed the donor form at the ceremony alongside Mr. Stein and President Savoie.
The Sandra Thompson Herman Papers will be housed in Dupré Library's Special Collections.
