Joseph Orban, a distinguished professor of biomedical sciences at Southern University has received the Presidential Volunteer Award from President Barack Obama. This is Orban's second time, as he received a similar award in 2007 from President George W. Bush for services he provided in Nigeria, Kenya and Bangladesh in relation to quality control, formulation, and production of poultry feeds.
The 2012 award is in recognition for the services provided by Orban in Mali and Ethiopia. In Mali, he provided training in the use of chromatography and amino acid analysis in assessing quality and safety of animal feeds for the people of Mali.
