Thanks to our alumni guests - EB Brooks, ‘00, Lex Pierre, ‘09, and Omar Munshi, ‘15 - who joined us in chapel the Monday of Homecoming Week to share adventures since leaving ESA, lessons learned and encouragement for current ESA students.
Scott Ardoin, ’92, professor of school psychology in the University of Georgia College of Education’s department of educational psychology, has been making news for his work on a method that helps students and teachers reclaim the time they lose transitioning between activities.
The Tates/Tutwiler Endowment supports need-based scholarships and helps us live our mission of making an ESA education available to all talented students in Acadiana. When the Smedes-Jardine family donated the land for the Cade Campus, they stipulated that ESA should educate the less fortunate in the local community. Today, earnings from the Tates/Tutwiler Endowment support ESA’s ability to award financial aid. Nearly ⅓ of ESA students are receiving financial assistance this year. With the support of ESA alumni and the continuing efforts of Dr. and Mrs. Tate and Mr. Tutwiler, the endowment has exceeded $1 million. Help us continue to grow this fund!
