Cathi Cox-Boniol
ACHIEVE Coordinator, Lincoln Parish Schools

Cathi Cox-Boniol, currently ACHIEVE Coordinator for Lincoln Parish Schools, left a 17 year career as a secondary science teacher at Choudrant High School in 1998 to become the Site Coordinator for Louisiana Tech University's Project LIFE. While at Louisiana Tech, she moved into the Program Coordinator position for CATALyST, the university’s Center for Applied Teaching and Learning to Yield Scientific Thinking. Now forging community based partnerships through Lincoln ACHIEVE, Cox-Boniol has initiated both the STEM Satellite and STEM Seed magnet programs as well as a creative writing emphasis in partnership with Louisiana Tech and Grambling State Universities. In addition, she founded the district’s award-winning New Tech @ Ruston school, a 21st Century learning environment based around innovation, project-based learning, and integrated technology.

An instructor of online learning for PBS, she also serves as an online mentor for the national eMMS program as well as a judge for the national Innovative Teacher Awards program. Her pursuit of educational excellence for all students has garnered Cox-Boniol numerous awards and honors including Louisiana's High School Science Teacher of the Year, The Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Teaching, and The Radioshack/Tandy Technology Scholars Outstanding Teacher Award. Selected to the inaugural New Tech Directors National Advisory Board where she served two terms, she was also recognized nationally with the Golden Achievement Award of Excellence for her work with ACHIEVE and most recently named among Delta Style Magazine’s “Sweet Sixteen” Most Influential Women.
