Alain Weber, president of the Lycee Francais de Chicago, will receive the Legion of Honour in a presentation Saturday night at the Radisson Blu Hotel.

Established by Napoleon Bonaparte, the Legion of Honour is France's highest decoration and is given to those who promote French culture at an exemplary level. Weber will receive the award from Francois Delattre, France's ambassador to the United States.

Weber has been with the school, an international K-12 school on the city's Near North Side, since 2007. He is known for his work citywide in supporting the French community and culture. For more information about the school, go to lyceechicago.org.
