2023 Hall of Distinction Nominee: Donna Dees-Thomases
Dees-Thomases graduated from LSU in 1979 with a degree in journalism, and later received her master’s degree from Northwestern University.
"I credit every success in my life to LSU, especially to Dr. Elsie Hebert’s public relations class. Dr. Hebert taught me how to use publicity to uplift worthy causes. And, as lagniappe, that class connected me to a mentor – Dan Borne. Mentors, as we know, play life-changing roles in shaping careers—as did mine. I’ve tried to pay that gift forward by mentoring others. I will be forever grateful." - Donna Dees-Thomases
