The Consul General of France in New Orleans, Gregor Trumel, tours Poverty Point and north Louisiana on Wednesday. Trumel will get a first-hand look at the World Heritage Site near Delhi, in a visit organized by Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne.
Later in the day, Trumel attends a ceremony in Shreveport, where he will bestow the French Legion of Honor Award to three American World War II veterans. The ceremony takes place at Centenary College.
Trumel was appointed by French President Francois Hollande last summer. This will be his first trip to north Louisiana.
