Law alumnus Ted Frois honored with St. Ives Award

Loyola press release - January 31, 2011

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law alumnus and Loyola Trustee Emeritus, Theodore (Ted) Frois, J.D. ’69, is the recipient of the 2011 St. Ives Award, the highest honor awarded by the College of Law Alumni Association.

The St. Ives Award, named for the patron saint of lawyers, is presented annually to alumni who have volunteered services to the College of Law or the university, maintained the highest standards of the profession and furthered the mission of the alumni association. Frois will be honored at the College of Law Alumni Luncheon on Friday, Feb. 4, at 11 a.m. at the Ritz Carlton New Orleans, 921 Canal St. Tickets are $50 and sponsorships are available. Visit alumni.loyno.edu/2011LawLunch for online registration.

“I am honored to be among the individuals who have received the St. Ives Award,” said Frois. “My Loyola education gave me the building blocks for a successful legal career, but more importantly, Jesuit values taught me that life is more meaningful if you use your success to help others finish well.”

Frois, a 1969 graduate of Loyola’s College of Law, retired last year from the Upstream Companies of Exxon Mobil Corporation, where he served as the general counsel, responsible for worldwide legal activities in the exploration, development, production, and gas and power marketing business of the company.

He graduated in the top 10 of his class at Loyola and served as associate editor of the Loyola Law Review. He is an emeritus member of the College of Law Visiting Committee. His wife, Louana Frois, J.D. ’88 is also a graduate of the College of Law.

In August of 2009, Frois was named trustee emeritus. Frois’ term with Loyola’s board of trustees began in 1999, and from Aug. 2005 — May 2008, he served as chair of the board. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Exxon Scholars Minority Scholarship program for the College of Law. In 2001, he and his wife endowed the Ted and Louana Frois Distinguished Professorship of International Law Studies. In 2006, they endowed the Major Theodore C. Frois (MIA Dec. 6, 1950, Korean War) Military Scholarship. Frois, a New Orleans native, now resides in Houston.
