THIS YEAR'S AWARD CEREMONY WAS A LIVE ON-AIR EVENT.

2021 Louisiana Legends: Dr. Carolyn Leach Huntoon, Dr. Terry King, Terry Landry, Johnny Robinson, and Donna Saurage.

The Louisiana Legends Awards Gala and Auction is a very special annual event hosted by Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting. The event honors the best and brightest of Louisiana’s sons and daughters who have distinguished themselves in a variety of disciplines and have brought honor to the state.


Friends of LPB is proud to announce that the 2021 Louisiana Legends are:

Dr. Carolyn Leach Huntoon, Scientist and first woman to serve as Director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center;

Terry King, MD, Renowned Pediatric Cardiologist, co-inventor of the King Mills Cardiac Umbrella;

Terry C. Landry, Sr., Retired Superintendent of the Louisiana State Police;

Johnny Robinson, Former LSU and NFL Player, 2019 NFL Hall of Fame Inductee; and

Donna Saurage, Philanthropist and Community Coffee Company Owner


The gala and auction was held Thursday, May 6, 2021, at Louisiana's Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge.


The Louisiana Legends Gala features an elegant sit-down dinner with wine pairings, an online silent auction featuring items donated by the honorees, music and an awards ceremony. This year’s awards ceremony will be a live on-air event, so we encourage home watching parties for family and friends who cannot attend due to capacity restrictions at the ceremony.

Begun in 1990 and now in our 30th year, the Louisiana Legends Gala is a fundraising and public awareness project that draws support and participation from Friends across the state who appreciate the many fine instructional, educational and cultural programs LPB provides.

Tickets sold out. I would like to support LPB.
