Jodee Hoover

The Holy Ghost Catholic School Home and School Association has selected Jodee Hoover as its 2015 Mother Seton Award recipient.

This award, created to honor exemplary volunteer service and dedication to home, school and church, is given annually. The recipient must also have strong Catholic values as well as a selfless dedication to Catholic education, a news release said.

“Jodee never stops, and if you ask her to do something to help, she never says no,” said Jennifer Sedberry, Holy Ghost Home and School Association president. “If you need something, Jodee will try her best to find a way to make it happen or secure a donation. She values her children’s Catholic education and is a true supporter of the school.”

Terri Morrison, assistant principal, described Hoover as “a loving and involved mother in each of her children’s classrooms.”

“She divides her time equally, making sure that all needs are taken care of.”

Hoover serves as a parent volunteer, substitute teacher, chaperone for field trips and as a classroom mom. She continues to serve as the Class Box Top Mom, as she has for the past four years.

She has volunteered as a co-leader of Girl Scouts and currently serves as the vice president of the Home and School Association.

Hoover is married to Brandon Hoover and they have three children: Joel, Ragan and Jake. She is a parishioner at Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Hammond.

The Diocese of Baton Rouge will honor all Mother Seton recipients April 21 at a luncheon.
