BATON ROUGE, LA. (NBC33) —
Dr. Donald R. Andrews, dean of Southern University’s College of Business, was recently named the recipient of the “Charles I. Hudson Visionary Award” by the Louisiana Black Caucus and the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus Foundation.
The award is given in recognition of Andrews’ commitment to the development of small businesses in Louisiana and abroad. Andrews received the award Nov. 26 at the LLBC’s 27th annual Bayou Classic Scholarship Jazz Brunch in New Orleans.
The award is named in honor of the late Louisiana state legislator and businessman from Opelousas who worked to raise the quality of life for African-Americans in the areas of human rights, civil rights, education, health care, policy reform and economic development.
