Sharon Lagarde

     Sharon Lagarde, Associate Professor of Biology, has another accolade to add to her growing list of accomplishments as an educator, the 2013 Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) Outstanding Faculty Member Award. 

     RPCC faculty members nominated Lagarde for the award because of her dedication to RPCC and its students.

     Dr. Crystal Lee, Dean of Academic Studies at RPCC, said, “Mrs. Lagarde is a true inspiration to others and works tirelessly in service to the students and the college.”

     Sharon’s service applies to RPCC and its students alike. Sharon participates in several administrative committees, including as the chairwoman for RPCC’s General Education Committee.  She is also involved in several student groups as a student moderator, including the Student Government Association, Rotaract and Gamma Beta Phi.  In this capacity, Sharon organizes the RPCC Health Fair, which has occurred every spring.

     Sharon devoted over forty years to education and has held her current position at RPCC since relocating to the area following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  

     Her work with students has not gone unrecognized.  Students recognized Sharon for her dedication by nominating her for the Who’s Who Award, which is an award Lagarde has received several times throughout her career.
