“Here at LYS you have met friends, leaders and mentors that you may have never crossed paths with, but I hope here, you have also met yourself," said Landrieu.

Earlier in the week Dr. Jan Daniel Lancaster was presented the “No Man Is An Island” Award, which honors an Outstanding Delegate Alumni who exemplified the ideals of LYS and has made exceptional contributions to something greater than him/herself since his/her year as a delegate at LYS.

Dr. Jan Daniel Lancaster, 2018 No Man Is An Island Award Recipient, has been an educational leader her entire career. After attending LYS in 1975, Dr. Lancaster went on to receive degrees from LSU, UNO and the University of Memphis. Starting as a teacher, Lancaster rose to her most recent role as the Superintendent of Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, where she led over 35,000 students in 80-plus schools. Today, with her own company, JDL Innovative Solutions, she travels across the country sharing her knowledge of running schools and school districts.

LYS also recognized supporters whose efforts have allowed LYS to remain “Louisiana’s Best” since 1971 through induction into the 1971 Club. 2018 inductees to the 1971 club are: Rochelle Touchard, Roxan Kraft, Onetha Wheeler, and Richard Morrison.

LYS is a week-long leadership seminar for high school students held on the campus of Louisiana State University during the third week in July. During LYS, students go through a series of hands-on, skill building exercises focused on leadership. They use their newly developed skills in a group setting to discover that leadership is not merely a matter of position or authority, but a matter of action.
