LWCC Raises $65,000 for Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program

WRITTEN BY

Baton Rouge, Louisiana (December 12, 2022) – Together with agent and business partners, LWCC donated $65,000 to the Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program during a public event today that featured Daniel Pink, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Power of Regret, When, To Sell is Human, Drive, and A Whole New Mind.  

The scholarship program, administered by LBF, provides higher education scholarships to dependent children of Louisiana workers who were killed or permanently disabled as the result of a workplace accident. Since 2004, the program has awarded 331 scholarships totaling $825,100.

“Caring for injured workers is an integral part of our mission at LWCC,” said Kristin Wall, LWCC President and CEO. “Workplace injuries impact the entire family and we are proud to have the Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program available to support the families of injured workers. It is through innovative initiatives and partnerships like these that we continue to celebrate and elevate Louisiana.”

Featured speaker, Daniel Pink, customized a presentation specifically for this audience, which included sponsors, agent partners, community leaders, and employees. His presentation, Five Ways to Navigate What’s Next, shared practical tips from across his fields of research, including the science of persuasion, motivation, timing, and regret, to help attendees navigate what’s next and how to help others flourish.  

Alan Brackett, Louisiana Bar Foundation President, the Honorable Page McClendon, Kids’ Chance Committee Chair, and Derek Trouard, former Kids’ Chance Scholarship Recipient, represented Kids’ Chance for the check presentation at the event.

"Without the efforts of LWCC and their sponsor partners, the Kids' Chance Scholarship Program wouldn't be possible. Through their donation, the Louisiana Bar Foundation is able to make a positive difference in the lives of children affected by their parent’s catastrophic workplace injury, by giving these young people a chance to pursue their educational goals,” says Page McClendon, Kids’ Chance Committee Chair.
