Epsilon State presented its first Friend of Education Award to Jean Doerge, District X Louisiana Representative until her term limit ended in January. Jean's dedication and commitment to education is reflective of our Society's mission and purpose.
When she was elected, Mrs. Doerge stated, "Educational programs and upgrading of technology in the classrooms must be a priority. Only then can our children have the knowledge and skills necessary to lead productive adult lives.” She worked hard to see that money was spent for our children. She even helped coordinate and host Epsilon State's last two legislative days in Baton Rouge.
Her support of education started 32 years ago in Webster Parish as a teacher. In 1986, she was initiated into Nu chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma where she served her chapter in many offices and remained an active member during her thirteen years in the legislature. Epsilon State was honored to present its first Friend of Education Award to Mrs. Jean Doerge.
