Student Success
"GRFA has both given me a way to make my current dreams come true by helping me pay for college, but it has also showed me that beauty and pride in your state can come from so many different things, and perspectives people have are so widely varied. Even though everyone sees Louisiana in a different light, we also get to see that there's a fundamental love that people of this land share through art they create to express their thoughts." - Alexandra Olivier
