Gonzales City Councilman Gary Lacombe awarded nine scholarships to East Ascension High School graduating seniors at the school’s Awards Night Ceremony on May 13.

Lacombe has been ridiculed as city councilman for the last few months, but said he’s going to continue to do what he campaigned for, one of which was to “donate 50 percent of the monthly stipend paid to me as your councilman to fund scholarships for graduating seniors from East Ascension High School.”

“I believe in following through on the promises I made to the community and implementing them,” Lacombe said after the ceremony. “I’m just proud to see these kids go on towards their next step in life and just want to let them know I do care and want to congratulate them with a small token.”

Lacombe is also one of two council members being sought after to be recalled from their position by a group called, “SaveGonzales.”
