At a December School Board meeting, members said goodbye to District 10 representative Judy W. Nicosia and welcomed Carl Gaines, Jr.

Nicosia filled the District 10 seat in March of 2016 following the untimely death of her husband, long-time board member Ronald J. Nicosia.

Superintendent Doris Voitier thanked Nicosia for her dedication to the students of St. Bernard.

“Ms. Nicosia has been a wonderful addition to our board these last ten months. She has been incredibly active within our school community, and we thank her for her service,” she said.

Gaines joins the board as the District 10 representative. A long-time educator, Gaines began his teaching career in 1988 at St. Bernard High School and retired in 2013 from Chalmette High School.
