• Coffee Talks and Town Hall Meetings

    Keeping with her commitment to hear from and actively "listen to the community", Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Melissa M. Stilley will again this year hold a series of “Coffee Talk” and Town Hall events for employees and the general public to come out and visit with her before the start of the new school year.

    Starting Tuesday, July 16, Stilley will be at different locations across the parish each week to hear from citizens and employees alike as the parish moves forward building a stronger public education system.

    On Tuesday, July 16, Stilley will hold two such gatherings. She will start the day at  “Collaboration Room” at Loranger Elementary School (54101 Martin Street, Loranger) for a Coffee Talk event from 8-10 a.m. Stilley will be on site to hear from the community about their needs, concerns, and suggestions for the public school system.
    Later on July 16, she will hold a Town Hall meeting starting at 2 p.m. in the auditorium at Sumner Middle School. That event will continue until approximately 4 p.m. and the public is invited and encouraged to come out and visit with the Superintendent.
