I have been honored to be the representative for Troop C since 2007 for the Louisiana Trooper Foundation.
For the past 37 years I have been in the shipyard business and I am presently vice president of Bourg Dry Dock a LeBeouf Towing company.
I feel that the foundation is a great way to support the troopers in all their endeavors including getting them necessary special equipment, assisting in their efforts in their respective troops and also personally when needed.
The troopers put their lives on the line every day for us, and this foundation is just a small way that we can assist them.
Mr. Bobby Barthel graduated from Nicholls State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering technology/civil in 1975. Mr. Barthel is currently the Vice President of New Construction for the Bourg Dry Dock, a division of LeBeouf Bros. Towing, LLC.
Along with serving on the board of the Louisiana Trooper Foundation, since 2007, Mr. Barthel also belongs to the South Central Industrial Association, the Terrebonne Waterways Association, the Luther Fletcher South Louisiana Technical College, and the Terrebonne Navigation Coalition. Mr. Barthel is also currently on the committee for Coastal Zone Management.
Aside from holding offices for SCIA, Barthel is also member of the group that worked to establish the fledgling Terrebonne Economic Development Agency and serves on the Terrebonne Port Commission. Mr. Barthel is also the current Louisiana Trooper Foundation Area Director for Troop C.
