The Tangipahoa Parish School System congratulates Superintendent Melissa Stilley for the honor of being chosen as the 2022 recipient of Southeastern Louisiana University’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Mrs. Stilley will be recognized at SLU’s 3 pm graduation ceremony on December 10.
A veteran educator with 35 years in the field, Stilley has served at every instructional level in the public school system. In July 2012, she was tapped for a role as network leader in the district support division of the Louisiana Department of Education.
Over the next several years, Stilley had the opportunity to work with over half of the public school districts across the state. In 2018, she returned home after being appointed to serve as Tangipahoa’s first female Superintendent of Schools.
