Two CCIMs Honored with CCIM Foundation Scholarships

Posted on Feb. 14, 2017

Karl Landreneau, CCIM, and Edwin A. White, CCIM, were each honored with scholarships in their names through CCIM Foundation. The $1,000 scholarships can be used toward CCIM Institute core courses and are fully funded by the Louisiana CCIM Chapter. 

“CCIM Institute is proud to establish scholarships named in honor of Karl and Ed,” says 2017 CCIM Institute President Robin L. Webb, CCIM. “The scholarships honor their outstanding service to CCIM Institute, the commercial real estate industry, and their local communities.”

Landreneau is Director of Commercial Sales and Leasing for NAI Latter & Blum in Alexandria, La. He served as 2014 CCIM Institute President, is a senior instructor for CCIM Institute, and a graduate of the CCIM Institute Jay Levine Leadership Academy where he was awarded the Susan B. Groeneveld award. Landreneau has served as the 2006 Chair of the Commercial Business & Industry Team for the Louisiana Realtors Association and as President of Commercial Investment Division of East Baton Rouge Parish in 2007. 

“Having a scholarship named in my honor has been the most humbling experience I have ever had,” Landreneau says. “I hope that this scholarship will benefit those who are struggling and new to the industry but have the drive to propel their commercial real estate education to the next level.”

White is president of Ed White & Associates, Inc., in Metairie, La., and is a past president of the Louisiana CCIM Chapter. He has also served as a Continuing Education Seminar instructor for the Metro Board of Realtors, was appointed a member of the Louisiana Board of Realtors, and co-founded United Christian Charities in 1991. 

“I would love to see others become successful from the knowledge and professionalism CCIM Institute programs could provide for their lives and careers,” White says. “As the commercial real estate industry becomes more complex, the CCIM designation is crucial to being competitive and successful and we are proud to support others in their goals.”

CCIM Foundation has been granting scholarships to deserving students and real estate professionals since 1988. The scholarship programs are designed to encourage and assist professionals pursuing the CCIM designation and to promote high educational standards.
