Thanks Gordon LeBlanc Jr.
for Indy Bowl Fame!

Gordon LeBlanc Jr.

If you watched the PetroSun Independence Bowl football game on television last December you may have noticed two “commercial” spots for Centenary during the game. And if you looked closely, you could note an acknowledgement thanking PetroSun for the air time.

The spots and indeed the bowl itself were all thanks to Centenary alumnus Gordon M. LeBlanc Jr., a member of the Centenary Class of 1974. He is CEO and chairman of PetroSun and is a third-generation member of the oil and gas industry with over 30 years of experience as an operator and geological consultant.

PetroSun’s web site notes that LeBlanc was driven to discover new energy production and reserves, founding LeBlanc Oil (1985) and Tiger Energy (1990) to concentrate on developing oil and gas prospects in the Holbrook Basin of Arizona, the San Juan Basin of New Mexico, the Canning Basin of Western Australia and the Cooper-Eromonga and Surat basins of Queensland, Australia.

It also notes that LeBlanc oversees a variety of philanthropic endeavors. He is the co-founder of “Every Kid Counts,” a 501C-3 children’s charity based in Phoenix, Arizona, and has actively served for the past 10 years as co-chairman of a group dedicated to fundraising efforts benefiting officers of the Phoenix Police Department.

And, we’re pleased to say, the biographical sketch notes, “Mr. LeBlanc majored in petroleum geology at Centenary College of Louisiana.” Thanks, Gordon, for giving back to your alma mater and the Shreveport-Bossier community.
