Donaldsonville native Charie Worley is serving as Donaldsonville High School assistant principal this school year.
Worley, a 1998 graduate of Donaldsonville High School, has been an educator for 10 years, seven at Donaldsonville High School.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Southern University and a Master of Educational Leadership degree from Nicholls State University. She is a doctoral candidate at Southeastern Louisiana University, anticipating completion of the program later this year.
She is a member of the NAACP, National Congress of Black Women in Baton Rouge, Southern Christian Leadership Conference Baton Rouge Chapter, Women Leading Group at SLU, the National Alliance of Black School Educators and the Southern University Alumni Federation. Her driving force in life has been, as she stated, “to fulfill my purpose.”
“I believe that God put me here to make a difference,” she said. “That’s what I’ll die doing. The principalship is just my next challenge, and I look forward to it. I’ll always strive to be the best that I can be because that is who I am. I can’t let myself down. I can’t let my family down. I can’t let my city down. There are just too many people who believe in me. ”
Worley is the daughter of the Rev. Rudolph Mitchell and Patricia Breaux Mitchell, of Donaldsonville. She lives in Gonzales with her husband, Jermaine Worley.
