NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – You may know him as “The Governor” or “Fitz.”

We know him as a great friend of the Boy Scouts and News with a Twist.

He’s former Lt. Gov. Jimmy Fitzmorris.

Monday, the Southeast Louisiana Council of Boy Scouts of America will honor Fitzmorris at their 90th anniversary fundraiser.

The 92-year-old has given more than 50 years of service to the scouts. He told Twist’s LBJ his faith keeps him going.
