Officer Honored for Work with SOLA


We would like to congratulate Major Ward Webb with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Department for receiving The Merit Award for his dedication and support of Special Olympics Louisiana!

According to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office “Major Ward Webb was recognized and given an Award of Merit by Sheriff Wiley.

Major Webb has been involved in Special Olympics and for several years he has dedicated hundreds of hours of his time, both on duty and off duty, to improve the lives of special needs children. Under his guidance the Law Enforcement Torch Run has grown from a handful to scores of participants and the Polar Plunge has grown from grossing just $700 in its first year to bringing in over $54,000 in 2014!

Through Major Ward Webb’s personal efforts the APSO was showcased on an International Level before 1,200 attendees at the International Conference in New Orleans last month and the Award of Merit he received today was earned by his hard work and dedication to a special cause!”

We would like to send a huge hug and many thanks to Major Ward Webb for everything you do for SOLA and the athletes! You deserve it!

Thank you Teacher’s
