Students from Harold Keller Elementary School, J.D. Meisler Middle School and Thomas Jefferson High School have been named Students of the Year by the Jefferson Parish Public School System.

The winners are fifth-grader Gayoon Nam, of Keller Elementary; eighth-grader Daniel Lau, of Meisler Middle; and senior Tram Nguyen, of Thomas Jefferson High.

“These students are so impressive in every way,” said Acting Superintendent Michelle Blouin-Williams. “We are excited to honor not only the students, but also their families, teachers, and school leadership through this program. Congratulations to Gayoon, Daniel and Tram on this well-deserved recognition; we are proud for you to represent Jefferson Parish at the state level.”

The Students of the Year Awards Program is sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Education. The district’s students of the year are now eligible to be selected as the statewide students of the year by the LDOE. Regional nominees for the state recognition will be announced in March, and winners will be announced in April. For information on the program, visit
