In conjunction with this event, The Center for the Study of New Orleans and Women’s Resource Center at Loyola are proud to announce their joint initiative to raise two scholarships, one named for Leah Chase and one named for Ella Brennan, famed female restaurateurs who have received honorary degrees from Loyola for their character and contributions to New Orleans culture and the national culinary scene.

“Through their trailblazing careers and civic engagement, these women exhibited the sort of perseverance, leadership, and excellence that make them a treasure to our city,” said Justin Nystrom, director of the Center for the Study of New Orleans and associate professor of history at Loyola University New Orleans.
