Proud to have served, be part of Denham Springs
I want to thank the citizens of School Board District 4 for giving me the opportunity to serve you these last eight years. I have considered it an honor and privilege. I chose not to seek a third term. Bradley Harris will succeed me when he takes the oath of office on January 10, 2019.
The last two years and four months have been difficult for the citizens of Denham Springs. As for our schools, we have about three years before our three flooded schools, now located on temporary campuses, can move to their new campus structures. We can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I want to thank several groups for their dedication, professionalism and perseverance in dealing with the flood aftermath.
Words can’t express my appreciation for the central office personnel, principals, teachers, support personnel, Immaculate Conception Church, parents and the students.
We were, and are, in this together. You have all dealt with inconveniences on a daily basis directly and indirectly. My parents taught me that one’s attitude in dealing with an issue can help or hurt. Great attitudes have contributed to our comeback.
I have always been proud to call Denham Springs my home. The character traits that I have witnessed these last two years and four months have reinforced my pride in “Denham.”
