New Appointments Announced


Mrs. Gidget Everitt, At-Risk Interventionist

The St. Mary Parish School Board would like to announce the appointment of Mrs. Gidget Everitt as the SMP At-Risk Interventionist. This role was recently vacated by Mrs. Sarah Theriot who accepted a position with the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP). Mrs. Everitt previously held this role for over 7 years before serving as a school administrator at Morgan City Junior High and Patterson High School. Mrs. Everitt earned both her Bachelor’s degree (2000) and Master’s degree (2012) at Nicholls State University. She just finished her 24th year serving St. Mary Parish Public Schools. Her training in Trust-Based Relational Interventions, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, and school safety will serve St. Mary Parish Public Schools well.

“Mrs. Everitt brings a wealth of educational experience and expertise to the At-Risk Interventionist role. We are fortunate to have her knowledge in such a vital position,” states Superintendent Buffy Fegenbush.


Ms. Elbone Delone, SMP Coordinator of Accountability

The St. Mary Parish School Board would like to announce the appointment of Ms. Elbone Delone as the Coordinator of Accountability. Ms. Delone will be replacing Ms. Robbie Gouaux, who is retiring this year. Ms. Delone holds a master’s in educational leadership from The University of Louisiana at Lafayette (2023). She began her educational career in St. Mary Parish at B. Edward Boudreaux Middle School teaching math in 2010. Under her care, her students rose to post the top scores in the district. In 2019, she transferred to Lafayette Parish and became the Math Master Teacher at Carencro High School. She transitioned into the data analyst position in the same school and has served in that role until this appointment. Her vast experience in coordinating assessments, data analysis, and mentoring will be an asset in her new role.

As a 1998 graduate of Franklin Senior High School, Ms. Delone stated that she is “excited about the opportunity to return home to contribute to St. Mary Parish’s mission for educational advancement for every student, every day.”
