West Calcasieu Chamber of Commerce is honored to announce your 2017 Citizen of the Year is no other than MRS. JODY BARRILLEAUX!!
2017 Citizen of The Year that will be added to the list of thirty-three individuals who have received this outstanding award that began in 1984. At that time the directors of the West Cal Chamber of Commerce wanted to honor and award an individual who had made a mark in the community giving of themselves building a better and more productive place to live and raise our families.
A life-long resident of Sulphur graduating from Sulphur High School. She has been involved in many, and I say, many community minded programs that have blessed people and communities throughout Southwest Louisiana.
Through her ministry, she has blessed hundreds of all ages, from kindergartens to senior citizens addressing whatever need that they may have. She gives her time and serves the Chamber in many ways always finding time to serve and help others expecting no recognition, simply, a silent hero.
Her calling in ministry is undoubting to promote love, caring, life, and compassion for everyone. This shows through their endeavors to help those who are seeking to learn more about life, healing after a suicide and to uplift the widowed. She works for Hixson-Sulphur Memorial Funeral Home in Community Relations. Jody considers herself a foodie and Hixson allows her to be one.
Congratulations to this well deserving individual - We love you Jody!
