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.

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.

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.

Current Topic

10/16 - Election 2016

What concerns are on citizens’ minds as they go to the polls this fall?

The presidential election may be getting all of the attention, but Louisiana residents will be making several important decisions at the ballot box in November. The U.S. Senate seat left up for grabs by retiring Sen. David Vitter has drawn a field of 24 candidates. Louisianians in the south- and northwest parts of the state will also be voting on congressmen. So, what national concerns are on citizens’ minds as they go to the polls this fall? What statewide issues should be on the mind of Louisiana’s next Congressional leaders? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Election 2016” Wednesday, October 26 at 7p.m. (Taping Tuesday, October 25)
