April Dunn served in the governor’s office of disability affairs.
“It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of our dear April,” Edwards said in a statement Saturday. “She brightened everyone’s day with her smile, was a tremendous asset to our team and an inspiration to everyone who met her.”
Dunn served as the chair of the Louisiana Developmental Disabilities Council and was a part of the State As A Model Employer Taskforce, Edwards said in the statement.
“I was proud to have an advocate like April on the task force and on my staff. She set a great example for how other businesses could make their workforce more inclusive,” Edwards said.
