Livingston Parish Honors Top Students of the Year


            LIVINGSTON, La. – The Livingston Parish School Board and Superintendent Rick Wentzel on May 4 recognized parish students in grades 5, 8 and 12, who were awarded Student of the Year honors at their respective schools, as well as the parish’s top three students who represented the parish at the state’s regional Student of the Year competition. 

            The parish’s top three 2017 Student of the Year winners include Daniel “Carson” Lusker-Whitten, a 5th grader at Eastside Elementary; Hailey Enamorado, an 8th grader at Denham Springs Junior High; and Eric Forbes, a senior at Holden High School. 

            Forbes will be entering Louisiana State University this fall with 60 credit hours and a 31 on his ACT.  He is graduating with a 4.0 GPA and is a noted Bible scholar who has learned more than 2,000 verses of scripture.

            Enamorado has a 4.0 GPA and president of her school’s honor society.  She recently created Hailey’s Heroes fundraiser for veterans and spoke at the Baton Rouge Fallen Officers Memorial.

            Lusker-Whitten has a 4.0 GPA and is active in Cub Scouts.  He recently helped to raise more than $60,000 for children with heart disease.

            “I’m continually amazed at the caliber of students we continue to turn out in Livingston Parish Schools.  Each year, our Student of the Year winners seem to raise the bar for academic excellence and community involvement.  This year’s list of winners is no different.  This is a tremendous tribute to their parents and our schools for fostering and nurturing such talent,” Superintendent Rick Wentzel said.  “Congratulations to all our winners.”
