10th Anniversary Celebration Inspires

Le Flambeau New Invite Panel (revised)The Le Flambeau Foundation 10th Anniversary Awards Celebration was a joyous occasion that brought together a diverse group of those passionate about education and Haiti, to the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Gleacher Center on the evening of October 26th, 2017.

DSC_9336upThe gathering was particularly symbolic since Chicago was founded by Jean Baptiste Point du Sable (also DuSable), a Haitian explorer and merchant. The Chicago Booth Gleacher Center happens to be located in the exact vicinity of DuSable’s home and trading center. Chicago is also the place where the spark that eventually led to the formation of Le Flambeau Foundation, was first lit.

Congratulations are extended to award recipients Deborah Fallahay, Ray Roman, and Judge Lionel Jean-Baptiste; and Le Flambeau Foundation scholar Ruchama. We thank Haiti Consul General of Chicago Lesly Condé and Professor Marvin Zonis f, and Dr. Joanne Marie Terrell for serving as keynote speaker.  Much appreciation is extended to the following team members –

• Deborah Fallahay (registration, floor director)DSC_9233

• Naomy Grand’Pierre (art auction volunteer, first female Haitian Olympic swimmer)
• Valerie Wilson-Reed (program emcee)
• Bijou Gervais (LFF coordinator)
