Brouillette Recognized By SACAC Board For Her Service

CHS college counselor, Sherry Brouillette, just competed her 3-year term on the Board of Directors for the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling(SACAC). The SACAC region is comprised of nine states and the Caribbean, and its mission is to Òsupport and engage its collaborative network of enrollment and counseling professionals by promoting ethical responsibility, professional growth, access, advocacy, and outreach to help all students realize their postsecondary educational goals.Ó ÒSACAC is so grateful to Sherry for her service on the Board of Directors,Ó said SACAC President Connie Scrivens. ÒHer work has directly and positively influenced the professional development of counselors across the Southern region of the United States in their quest to better serve college-bound students.Ó  

Brouillette was first recognized by SACAC in 2010 for her service to the organization, her colleagues and her students, when she was awarded the Larry West Award, the highest award given by SACAC. She then served a term on the Board of Directors for the National Catholic College Admission Association from 2010-2012. Her SACAC service has ranged from being a conference volunteer, a national college fair committee member, a coordinator for counselor workshops in the SACAC region, a leader in state & area initiatives, a Camp College volunteer, a national delegate and an active participant in the legislative days held at the Louisiana State Capitol. Her tireless efforts and dedication prompted the SACAC Nominating and Governance Committee to nominate her for the Board of Directors in 2014.  

Brouilette is completing her 19th year at Catholic High where she has served as the Director of College Counseling and the National Honor Society moderator. In 2006 following Katrina, CHS awarded her the Brotherhood/Sisterhood Award in recognition of her efforts for organizing and distributing supplies to Catholic Relief Services in the Diocese of Baton Rouge, coordinated through a SACAC contact at the Garden School in New York City. She was also actively involved in our community during the August 2016 flooding in the Baton Rouge area by distributing supplies and working with numerous clean-up efforts.
