The Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS)’s Students of the Year Program is designed to recognize outstanding elementary, middle/junior high, and high school students. This program recognizes those students who have demonstrated excellent academic achievement, leadership ability, and citizenship. The Students of the Year Awards Program is sponsored by the Louisiana State Superintendent through the State Department of Education and the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. LPSS is proud to participate in this awards program to recognize the outstanding work that our students produce every day.
The Students of the Year election committee, made up of community members representing business/industry, labor and civic organizations, conducted interviews and reviewed writing samples, since these are components of the regional and state level programs.
The committee has chosen the three Lafayette Parish students who will represent the school district at the state regional competition held in February. Congratulations and good luck to the following recipients:
Fifth Grade - Iris Lormand, Evangeline Elementary
Eighth Grade - Alyssa Gordon, Youngsville Middle
Twelfth Grade - Caroline Munsell, Lafayette High
