Sara Jolie Named the April 2021 Class Act

“Sara Jolie is a librarian at Sam Houston High School. She is so much more than that! Her library is truly the HEART of the school. Because of an increase in challenges in the student body associated with suicide, and other issues that threaten the mental health and stability of our teens, Ms. Jolie has partnered with the McNeese Psychology Department to create a thriving “clinic” to help meet the needs of students. This is an INVALUABLE service and needs to be recognized by the district and community as a Class Act.” Carolyn Thomas

Lake Charles Toyota is proud to partner with KPLC to spotlight the best educators in Southwest Louisiana. Nominations are gathered through where they are evaluated and chosen by a panel of KPLC employees.

You’re a Class Act!”
