Recent research has produced a list of Vermilion Parish School Superintendents. Published here for the rarity of this find.
The dates of this list is confusing and appears incorrect. More research is intended to explain the dates and to correct any mistakes that the research brought forward. VP educator Eston J. Hebert published this list in the Meridional during his term of office as Superintendent. He requested pictures to hang on the VPS Board meeting room wall. Please return in the near future the see the corrected list or contact the Web Master if you have information that can help correct it. See bottom of page for email address.
