SPES principal recognized by University of Holy Cross
Dr. Stacey-Ann Barrett, principal of South Plaquemines Elementary School, received two distinctive awards May 6 at the University of Holy Cross’ Commissioning of Teachers and Leaders Ceremony.
Barrett was recognized for Cohort I Dissertation of the Year and as Cohort I Trailblazer of the Year. The Trailblazer award is presented to honor the recipient’s “I can do it, and I will do it” attitude demonstrated throughout their studies in the graduating class of the Doctorate of Executive Leadership. The Dissertation of the Year Award recognizes exemplary scholarly research and analytical abilities.
Barrett was under the impression that the ceremony was being held to bless the hoods of the graduates and had no idea that awards would be distributed. When she heard her name announced the first time, it took her a minute to get up, as she was in total shock. When she heard her name announced the second time for Dissertation of the Year, she was astounded.
