Brother Coudrain Recognized for Community Service
Patrick G. Coudrain (Gamma Alpha–Louisiana Tech ’07) was named Holy Ghost Catholic School’s Distinguished Graduate for the 2018-2019 school year.
“It is a tremendous honor considering that Holy Ghost was founded in 1912 and there are thousands of very deserving and qualified candidates to choose from,” said Coudrain.
Patrick now works as an associate at Cashe, Coudrain & Sandage in Hammond, Louisiana where he has continued his community service. Coudrain serves on a total of three boards, including St. Thomas Aquinas High School, the Hammond Kiwanis Club, and Options, Inc.—a local nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities for community members with disabilities.
Coudrain said his experiences with The Order continue to play a role in his commitment to service. “KA helped develop qualities of leadership, responsibility and philanthropy that I have used in the Hammond, Louisiana community since the moment I began my professional career.”
After getting his start at Holy Ghost, Coudrain went on to Louisiana Tech University to pursue a degree in marketing, during which time he was elected to lead the chapter as Number 1.
Coudrain was one of only five brothers nationwide chosen for the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program, which annually provides opportunities for undergraduates in The Order to pursue professional experiences on Capitol Hill. He spent the summer working in the office of Congressman Frank Lucas.
Patrick obtained his law degree in 2015 from Loyola University in New Orleans.
