Cox Communications New Orleans honored more than 100 students from the New Orleans area who lead meaningful, productive lives, while working very hard to overcome personal adversities April 28.

The students were recognized during the 23rd annual Cox Inspirational Heroes Program at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner. A breakfast and awards program were held.

Each spring, all public, private and parochial schools in the parishes of Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard and St. Charles nominate one student hero from within their school. Through the Cox Inspirational Heroes Program, Cox has recognized more than 3,000 students (K-12) who have made overwhelming achievements despite their physical, emotional, psychological or social challenges faced on a daily basis. Challenges include academic difficulties, physical challenges, mental/emotional challenges, serious illness, family adversities, substance abuse, cultural transitions, language transitions and behavioral disorders. Guests of the recognition program include district superintendents, administrators, educators, parents and family members.
