The Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) is recognizing the impact educators have made on students despite facing extraordinary obstacles over the past two years. This past Friday, Louisiana State Superintendent, Dr. Cade Brumley, BESE District 5 Representative Mrs. Ashley Ellis, Jackson Parish School Board members, and district staff came to Quitman High School on Friday to present Principal Billy Carter and staff with a “Comeback Campus” banner.
What is a Louisiana Comeback Campus?
Louisiana Comeback Campuses are schools that increased the percentage of students scoring mastery and above and decreased the percentage of students scoring unsatisfactory in both Math and English Language Arts on statewide assessments when compared to 2019.
Carter appointed to LHSAA Executive Committee
For over two decades, Billy Carter has helped first the students and then the faculty and staff at Quitman High School achieve great heights through his instruction and guidance as first a coach and later as Principal. Now he will look to do the same for the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA). “Coach” as he is fondly called, will still be the Principal at QHS but this past week he was appointed to the prestigious position as a member of the LHSAA Executive Committee, representing north Louisiana Class B schools.
