The 10/31 Consortium motto is Community Courage Creativity. As such, it is our pleasure to honor individuals in the Baton Rouge area who live by these ideals. Nominations for our Special Awards are open to the public. You do not have to be a member of 10/31 Consortium to nominate or be nominated. All award recipients are honored at the organization’s annual Half-oween Celebration, the Black and Orange Bash, at the end of April.


The 2013 Special Award recipients were the first to be recognized by 10/31 Consortium. As such, the awards have been named for these remarkable individuals:


The Saundra Lane Community Award is meant to honor those who have dedicated their time and talents to improving the Baton Rouge community.


The Corey Tullier Courage Award is intended to honor those in our area who live a life with courage of conviction and inspire courage in others by boldly facing adversity.


The Dwayne Sanburn Creativity Award is for those whose gift of creativity has benefited the Baton Rouge area.


In 2015, the 10/31 Consortium board added the Lance Parker Spirit Award. This award recognizes the member who best embodies the spirit of 10/31 Consortium and is the club’s “best cheerleader.” The Board of Directors makes annual nominations and votes on the winner. Lance Parker was the first to be recognized with the Spirit Award, and therefore the award has been named for him. The Spirit Award is handed out annually at the Black and Orange Bash.


In 2017, the 10/31 Consortium board added the Jamie Schexnayder Behind the Scenes Award. This award is given to the board member who works hard out of the spotlight and receives little recognition. Jamie Schexnayder was the first to be recognized with Behind the Scenes Award, and therefore the award has been named for her. The Behind the Scenes Award is handed out at the annual open meeting which takes place at the end of July.


Congratulations to our Special Award winners!
