All across the state of Louisiana, you can find young people who are enjoying the summer- those ten or so glorious weeks where no books beckon and a teenager can answer the calls of their bed until all hours of the afternoon. In Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, however, you’ll find students still at work, still pursuing excellence.
You see, at TM Landry College Prep, the students only get a five-day break for summer. One week, and then these hard-working students are back in the classrooms. The independent, coeducational year-round school has garnered attention for its students’ impressive academic achievements, including a 100 % graduation rate and a 100% acceptance rate to four-year universities.
Dr. KaNisha Hall, Howard University College of Medicine alumna and executive board member, was recently invited to speak at TM Landry College Prep. Hall is passionate about bridging the gap in education in Louisiana. She has longed to see advancements in the Louisiana education system since her matriculation from Louisiana Tech University for her undergraduate degree.
While visiting, Dr. Hall was astonished to see the shift in the curriculum at TM Landry and the impact it has had on the students. The programs at TM Landry require rigorous work ethic – in and out of the classroom. This college prep school is contributing to the success of young academic superstars and is a perfect fit for those who think outside of the box. TM Landry has proven to help its students accomplish their goals in college and beyond. Dr. KaNisha Hall went to Breaux Bridge to reach and teach students, and while there, she learned just what TM Landry expects.
So while there are children complaining of the heat or their boredom, some of Louisiana’s most advanced students are back at work. Here’s a recap of Dr. KaNisha Hall’s visit to TM Landry College Prep:

Women Investors Network Founder, DJ Johnson had a vision to bring women together to uplift, encourage and inspire them to #WIN. DJ has managed to thrive within the real estate business as an investor; a field traditionally dominated by males. The Lunch and Learn Series was a pure manifestation of her vision. The occasion was coordinated by La’Torria Lemon of Lemon Lime Light Media. It was liberating to be among a group of professional women who share great ambition and to learn key strategies from a group of profound women entrepreneurs who are on top of their game in their respected fields.
The panel was led by keynote speakers: Cheryl Creuzot, an award-winning financial planner, Shenoah Grove, vice president of Love American Homes and WIN’s founder; DJ Johnson.
