Acadian’s Salute to Healthcare Heroes

On Tuesday, September 1, 2020, we honored our medics and all of the healthcare heroes who serve our communities during Acadian’s annual Medic of the Year Celebration. You can watch the webcast below.

Our sincere appreciation to the sponsors of this special event.

Extra money raised from sponsorships will be used to fund scholarships for EMT and paramedic students at the National EMS Academy. Through our sponsors’ generosity, these students will be able to impact the lives of thousands during their EMS careers.

Featured Speaker

U.S. Representative Steve Scalise

Steve Scalise proudly represents the First Congressional District of Louisiana, stretching from the beautiful Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain and the culturally distinct New Orleans suburbs to the vibrant bayous and wetlands abundant in natural resources. He was elected to Congress in 2008 after serving in the Louisiana State Legislature from 1996-2008. He serves his colleagues as the House Republican Whip, the second highest position in House Republican leadership.

A steadfast defender of Louisiana’s coast, Scalise led the effort in the House to pass the RESTORE Act, which was signed into law in July 2012. The RESTORE Act dedicated the vast majority of Clean Water Act fines from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill to coastal restoration. This legislation is widely regarded as the single most significant action taken to restore Louisiana’s coast.

Critically wounded at a Congressional baseball practice on June 14, 2017, Scalise was saved by a heroic response from U.S. Capitol Police Special Agents and Alexandria Police Officers. Scalise fought for his life and returned to Congress, inspiring the nation with his resilience and optimism. Throughout his recovery, he was moved by the outpouring of prayers and support he and his family received from the American people.

Special Guest Appearances

Our 2020 Medic of the Year Celebration also included special appearances by U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Coach Ed Orgeron and Coach Lou Holtz.
