Katie LeLeaux was selected to receive the highest honor awarded to a graduating Master’s Student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She was recognized as the Outstanding Master’s Graduate for the graduating class of Spring 2017.
She has a 4.0 GPA.
Her master’s project re-envisioned the former federal courthouse in downtown Lafayette as a homeless shelter. The proposal received the David Williams Award, the architecture program’s highest honor.
As a member of the Community Design Workshop, Leleaux contributed to public discussions about the proposed Interstate 49 Connector and served as chief editor of an upcoming volume that will detail what implications the elevated six-lane highway may hold for Lafayette.
In April, she represented the University at CriticalMASS, a symposium where faculty and graduate students from programs across the country gather to discuss architectural ideas and issues.
Last year, Leleaux received the American Institute of Architecture Students Excellence in Service Award for her contributions to the UL Lafayette College of the Arts.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from UL Lafayette and is the daughter of Roger and Darlene Leleaux of Duson, La.
