Amid the sheer pandemonium incited by COVID-19, some states seem to be attempting to adjust to the new normal while eager to conduct business as usual. Alabama is one such state. With nearly most businesses reopened, Governor Kay Ivey seems confident in her state’s resiliency in light of the COVID-19-spurred adverse economic impact on businesses within the state, and while still practicing social distancing and other recommended measures.
Governor Ivey made time to issue a proclamation to trusted Equality Advocate, Researcher, Molecular Formulist, and National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day Founder, Greshun De Bouse on May 29, 2020.
We caught up with Greshun to ask how she felt receiving her now second proclamation from Governor Kay Ivey, and she said this:
“It feels awesome to know that amid all else Governor Ivey thinks enough of me and my cause to join the other governors and mayors by issuing a proclamation for National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day in the state of Alabama, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day 2019 official celebration was held in South Louisiana and included a free raffle, nutritionist speakers, music, games, and of course boiled/baked shrimp and stuffed shrimp! Greshun says the kids and adults were really engaged last year and were serious about incorporating more stuffed shrimp done healthily into their diets.
After the 2019 official celebration, founder Greshun De Bouse hit the road educating all on the origin and health benefits of stuffed shrimp prepared healthily for the body, as well as seeking the healthiest and tastiest stuffed shrimp. The 2019 winner of the National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day Taste Competition National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day Taste Competition was Malone’s Steak & Seafood in Atlanta, GA. In addition to previously known health benefits of stuffed shrimp, Greshun’s recent research findings implicating shrimp and lobster in potential COVID-19 combativeness, parallel the April 2020 assertion of Maine scientist Dr. Robert Bayor.
We wanted to know how it felt traveling the nation educating on stuffed shrimp origin and benefits, so we asked the expert. She said this:
I love traveling to various cities and educating all on stuffed shrimp origin firstly. I always pay homage to the birthplace of stuffed shrimp, Shreveport, LA, wherever I go. As a Louisianian, it is important that many states like Alabama that have at least one city hosting a Stuffed Shrimp Festival, know where this amazing dish originated. When speaking, I love to see the pleasantly surprised facial expressions of the audience when they learn the amazing health benefits of stuffed shrimp done healthily. Last year, persons sent me their recipes and wanted to know mine. It was a wonderful thing. We encourage patronization of restaurateurs in one’s respective area serving stuffed shrimp dishes for economic stimulation.
Well our favorite sweetheart and Queen of All Things Good, Greshun De Bouse has not let the pandemic slow her down at all. Where does she get her energy? We all want some that’s for sure. Congratulations on your proclamation for National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day from the Governor of Alabama! How will you celebrate National Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Day 2020?
