Gov. Bobby Jindal appears on the season premiere of Duck Dynasty June 11.
In February, Gov. Bobby Jindal presented the first "Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence" to the Robertson family — the founders of the Monroe company Duck Commander
and stars of the A&E reality-flavored favorite Duck Dynasty
— and that award presentation will be one of the centerpieces of the show's Season 6 debut
June 11. (Watch the preview trailer here

Now Jindal has presented a second Louisiana company with the Entrepreneurial Excellence Award, according to a press release from the governor's office. This time it goes to Iberia Parish's Metal Shark Aluminum Boats
, which is "a leading supplier of welded aluminum boats for commercial, defense, and law enforcement applications worldwide," according to the company's website.
According to the governor's office, "The Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence is periodically awarded by the Governor to businesses that grow and provide more opportunity, more jobs, and more commerce for the State of Louisiana." Will that award ever be won by anyone in Orleans Parish, home of Entrepreneur Week
? Or Baton Rouge, which has its own Entrepreneur Week
