Minden High School teacher honored for 50 years of service

by Amber McDown

During the Webster Parish School Board meeting on February 5, Lessie Brown, a dedicated teacher at Minden High School, was recognized as the Employee of the Month. The award was presented by Kevin Thompson of Taylor and Sons.

Thompson began his presentation by stating that, while every Employee of the Month is special, this one is particularly so because Ms. Brown started her 50th year teaching this year. Her letter of recommendation read:

“Mrs. Lessie is a huge blessing to Minden High School, to our students and the community she serves. She has faithfully served as a teacher for 50 years. She has taught multiple generations of students throughout Minden.She serves at Minden High School as a teacher and a Tider Line sponsor, but she is much, much more than that. Ms. Lessie is a role model to students, a guidance counselor for all, a friend to faculty and staff, and, for me, she is my school mom. She takes care of so many things in order to help make Minden High School successful. She is a true blessing. Mrs. Lessie loves her students and her school and we love her! Roll Tide!”

Superintendent Johnny Rowland commended Brown’s positivity and kindness throughout her five decades of service. He stated, “After 50 years, the thing that impresses me so much about you is how positive you are and always so sweet and kind. We appreciate your service.”

The next meeting of the school board is scheduled for March 4 at 6 PM, and the public is invited to attend.
