Logan Is Recognized for Local Contributions

DALLAS G. King Logan, CEO and president of Logan Marketing & Communications, received the Crescent Award at a ceremony last Friday, the shop said.

The Crescent Award is presented annually to a person in the advertising community who has contributed time and resources to improving the city of New Orleans. Sponsored by local radio station WWL 870 AM, an independent panel of judges selected Logan as the 2004 honoree.

Logan currently serves on the boards of the YMCA/New Orleans, Development Committee of the Greater New Orleans Foundation, the United Way of Greater New Orleans, the Louisiana Civil Service League and the Metropolitan Crime Commission.

He has previously served as president of a number of civic and nonprofit organizations, including Longue Vue House and Gardens and Save Our Cemeteries. Logan is an honors graduate of Tulane University.
