As the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts prepared for the new school year, faculty and staff participated in annual in-service, a week full of presentations, required meetings and awards. During in-service, LSMSA recognized faculty and staff for their years of service to the school. Certificates are awarded on a five-year basis. This year, 10 members of the LSMSA family reached new milestones.
Dr. Pamela Francis completed her fifth year of service as an English teacher. Jacob Speilbauer, Health and Physical Education teacher, and Erin King, personal counselor, both have reached their ten year milestone.
