Rotarian of the Day - Jerry Ledet


Jerry Ledet was introduced to the club by Reuben Williams. He is President and CEO of Synergy Bank. Jerry's hobbies include salt water fishing, traveling, and trying new foods and restaurants.


Jerry is married to Susal LeCompte Ledet and in a month it will be their 25th anniversary. They have a daughter, Emily, who is a senior in college and a dog named Lucie.


Jerry says he joined Rotary because, "Rotary represents the leaders and doers in our community, and I wanted to be a part of that."


Guest Speaker - D-D Breaux, LSU


With each passing season, LSU gymnastics continues to collect more honors and titles to its storied program, and head coach D-D Breaux has been the catalyst behind LSU’s sustained success. Led by Breaux, LSU has seen increasing accomplishments that includes 17 NCAA Championships appearances in the last 18 seasons, eight NCAA Championship Finals appearances since 2008 and 14 individual national titles since 2002. 


Under Breaux’s leadership and coaching, LSU has reached new heights in individual and team success. Now entering her 43rd season as the mastermind of the LSU gymnastics program, Breaux exudes the same passion and enthusiasm to coach the Fighting Tigers as she did in her first season on the job. As the “Dean of Coaches” at LSU and in the SEC, Breaux has represented the University at the highest level both in the gym and, most importantly, in the classroom for more than 40 years. Her dedication to the student-athlete on an individual basis has transcended into academic success, community involvement, Coach of the Year honors, SEC Championships, NCAA Regional Championships and Top-10 national rankings throughout her tenure. In fact, there is a tremendous balance between academics and athletics as LSU has produced 250 All-Americans and 150 Scholastic All-Americans during Breaux’s tenure. 


During her tenure Breaux has established and maintained LSU’s reputation as one of the premier collegiate gymnastics programs in the country. Under her tutelage, the Tigers have placed among the nation’s top-10 teams 30 times in 42 seasons, finishing a program-best second in 2016, 2017 and 2019, third in 2014, fourth in 1988 and 2018, fifth in 2008 and 2013 and sixth on four separate occasions.
