The Louisiana Legends Awards Gala is a special event hosted annually by Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting. This event recognizes the best and brightest of Louisiana’s sons and daughters who have distinguished themselves in a variety of disciplines, and who have brought honor to the State of Louisiana. Louisiana Legends have been named and recognized each year by LPB since the event’s inception in 1990.

Weems’ broad and diverse public, community and civic service made him the first practicing attorney to be honored by LPB as a Louisiana Legend.
