HAMMOND – Area businessman Jonathan Wong has been named Southeastern Louisiana University’s 2020 Young Alumnus of the Year. He will be officially recognized at the Southeastern Alumni Association Awards Evening to be held this fall during Homecoming Week.

Wong graduated from Southeastern in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in international business. He is co-founder and team leader of Cate Street Seafood Station in Hammond and The Boston Restaurant in Amite.

“We are pleased to honor Jonathan Wong as our Young Alumnus of the Year,” said Southeastern Alumni Board President Richard “Dickie” Whitson. “Jonathan is an exceptional young man and a thriving business owner. As an alumnus of Southeastern, Jonathan continues to support the university and hires many students in his restaurants.”

Wong is a member of the 2019-20 Southeastern Foundation Board of Directors, served as a 2017 board member of the Hammond Downtown Development District and a local community advisor to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Hammond, and was honored by the Hammond Daily Star in 2018 as a “Future 40 Under 40.”

In November, Wong treated Southeastern’s international students to dinner at the Mezzanine Event Center. The purpose of the dinner was to connect international students to the Hammond community and to discuss student possibilities, as well as concerns.

Alumni Awards Evening will also include recognition of several Southeastern faculty and staff and alumni, including Alumna of the Year for 2020 Genevieve May, public safety executive and retired U.S. Marshal.
