Donna Britt attends son's graduation

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It’s the night that former WAFB anchor Donna Britt literally fought to make it to.

On Saturday, May 18, Britt joined hundreds of others as graduates from Episcopal High School crossed the stage. Among them was Britt’s son, Louis Ballard.

Louis will be attending Wake Forest University.

Britt, a longtime member the WAFB family, anchored her final newscast Wednesday, June 13.

She has spent her retirement rallying the community to support those battling ALS. A breast cancer survivor, Donna has also been active in fundraising for breast cancer research including participating in Susan G. Komen events.

She continues to make public appearances when she is able to and enjoys spending time with her family.
