On Thursday, May 1, the Arc of Acadiana held its annual membership banquet at the Cajun RVera in New Iberia.

Approximately 200 members, employees, clients and invited guests were present to hear UL Coach Mark Hudspeth speak and to celebrate the milestones the organization reached over the past year. Coach Hudspeth spoke to members about perseverance, self-motivation and teamwork, which are all things Arc of Acadiana members can relate to very well.

"Never let go of the rope," encouraged Coach Hudspeth, referencing a teamwork exercise he did with UL football players, "Always fight for each other and pull in the same direction."

Arc CEO Kenny Patton discussed Arc of Acadiana's plans throughout its six-parish territory for the coming year, reviewed the past year's accomplishments, and awarded members that go above and beyond their call of duty. "Arc members help provide valuable opportunities and services for the developmentally disabled throughout Acadiana," said Patton when thanking members for continually supporting Arc.

Since last year's banquet, Arc has opened new locations in Lafayette and New Iberia, allowing them to provide a greater range of services to even more clients throughout Acadiana. Employees with multiple years of service were recognized and given bonuses at the banquet, and a new board of directors was elected and sworn in.

In closing, the Arc of Acadiana leadership expressed its deep gratitude to all of its employees, members, clients and friends who have helped build the organization into a true resource for the greater Acadiana community.
