Stacy is the first Interpreter from the state of Louisiana to win any national award from NAI.  She joined the parish in 2012, and became education coordinator for parks and recreation in 2015.  In addition to this role, she also is certified as an Certified Interpretive Guide.

The award was presented at the NAI National Conference in Cleveland, Ohio in December.
