Moreau family creates scholarship for pre-physical therapy students

A Baton Rouge family honored the family patriarch by establishing a scholarship in his honor at Northwestern State University.  The Al Moreau Jr. Scholarship will put priority on students in pre-physical therapy. 

Moreau, of Zachary, is a 1966 graduate of NSU, earned All-Gulf States Conference honors as a member of the Demon football team. He was a teacher and coach in Baton Rouge and Lafayette high schools before attending graduate school at LSU and graduating from University of AUB Medical Center as a physical therapist. In 1977, he opened the first Moreau Physical Therapy Clinic in Zachary and now has clinics throughout the Baton Rouge region. He is a member of the State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners.

He was inducted into the Long Purple Line, NSU’s alumni hall of distinction, in 2008.
