Golden Meadow – Fourchon Tarpon Rodeo officials announced today their 2018 Rodeo Admiral. Trey Boucvalt has been named Admiral for the 70th Annual Golden Meadow – Fourchon Tarpon Rodeo that will take place July 5th, 6th, and 7th at Moran’s Marina in Fourchon, LA.
Boucvalt, a current resident of Austin, TX, has lifelong ties to the River and Bayou parishes. He spent his youth in the River parishes and most of his adult life on the Bayou before moving to Austin, TX. Boucvalt is married to the former Brandi Fryoux for 23 years. They have 2 children, Lex (16 yrs) and Ori (15 yrs). Boucvalt has 2 siblings, Jason M. Boucvalt and Allison Boucvalt Froeba. Unfortunately, although Boucvalt’s parents, Lawrence X. Boucvalt Jr., and Kathryn Denoux Boucvalt, are no longer with us, everyone knows that they are both smiling from the heavens and are very proud parents. They both loved the Golden Meadow – Fourchon area and made many memories at the rodeo.
Upon accepting the position of Admiral, Boucvalt said, “This is a dream come true. I cannot think of a greater honor.” Boucvalt enjoys extracurricular activities such as hunting, fishing, golf and attending any sporting event. He currently serves on the LSU tiger Athletic Foundation Board of Directors and on the St. Michael’s Catholic Academy Board as a trustee. In 2005, Boucvalt was elected as the Louisiana State Young Alumnus of the year. Boucvalt just recently signed a letter of intent to purchase the LA Tour Golf Community, with which he plans to follow John Brady’s vision and dream and fully develop the property and make it one of the most prestigious communities to live and visit in South LA. Boucvalt is currently CEO of ES&H and has enjoyed success in the Environmental and Industrial Services sectors. He formed ES&H in 1994 with just 2 employees and now has over 300 employees in the Gulf of Mexico Region. Boucvalt/ES&H was a major factor in the Hurricane Katrina and Deep Water Horizon clean-ups.
Boucvalt is very excited and humbled about the opportunity. “I am blessed to represent a fun, family event as Admiral of 2018, which I have participated in my entire life. I encourage all families to come and enjoy the fun and make as many memories as they can and seize the moment. Please come and enjoy our South LA hospitality of great food and music under the air-conditioned tent and, of course, fishing. We have many categories to enter and offer great prizes.”
Rodeo officials also announced that local artist Christy Boutte has been commissioned to create this year’s rodeo artwork, which will be used to produce shirts, memorabilia, and the official rodeo book and poster.
The Rodeo events officially start on July 4th at La Tour Golf course with all proceeds going to the scholarship program.
