New principals sought for Grand Lake, South Cameron

By Cyndi Sellers

The Cameron Parish School Board is looking for two new principals. Dr, Holly Castile has been appointed as Food and Nutrition/Curricu-lum Supervisor, leaving the Grand Lake HS position open, and South Cameron HS principal Bobbye Delany is retiring Sept. 9.

At the Cameron Parish School Board meeting May 13, Supt. Charley Lemons asked to hire Delaney’s replacement early so he or she can work during the summer on the next school term.

Project Manager James Hoffpauir said bids on the Hackberry ADA upgrades would be opened May 16. The project was to be awarded if it came in under budget, which it did. Gunter Construction was the low bidder, at $998,450.

The April revenue and expense report reflected a lower deficit for the year so far than expected. Michelle Trahan said ad valorem taxes have increased almost $950,000 over last year to date, and the sale of the Educational Conference Center added $2.5 million to the coffers, resulting in a $1.3 million deficit to date, compared to $3.6 million at this time last year.

The Center for Orthopaedics reported that injuries were down for the last quarter of the school year, with 19 injury assessments made through 95 athletic events. Of those injuries, none required surgery. Of the four injuries that required physician visits, one was non-orthopedic. Events included 22 basketball games, 10 track meets, 39 baseball games, 21 softball games, and 3 softball tournaments.

No bids were received on alligator egg collection rights, and it is basically too late to re-bid, board members were told.

The Board went into executive session for evaluation of the Superintendent.
