St. Bernard School Board Reflects on the Last 15 Years
Like so many other big gatherings, the St. Bernard Parish Schools annual Day of Reflection breakfast did not take place as planned. However, on this 15th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the district did recap the last decade and a half, when it presented its Day of Reflection Abridged 15 years in 15 minutes. This video project highlights the challenges, progress, and successes of the district since its dark days of 2005 by taking a look back at what has become a signature event of the parish. Each year hundreds of friends, neighbors, state, local and federal leaders enjoy food and fellowship at Chalmette High School during the last week of August.
Superintendent Doris Voitier expressed her disappointment not hosting the event this year, but she expressed her gratitude and appreciation for the support the community has shown the school system over the years.
“Our annual celebration is always a time for reflections and reunions. For tears and laughter. For food and fellowship. A morning of poignant moments, live performances and funny videos, she said. “This event means a lot to our school family each year because it brings people together. Those who live and work here. And those who miss living and working here, but whose love for the parish endures.”
