The panel consisted of District Attorney Scott Perrilloux, Sheriff Daniel Edwards, Judge Blair Edwards, State Police Public Information Officer Nick Manale, Assistant District Attorney LeAnne Malnar, TRACC Director Bridget Bailey and STA Disciplinarian Nick Stoulig. Parents were able to hear from each panelist and direct questions to any of them.

Several STA students participated and excelled in various programs during the summer.
Southeastern Louisiana University awarded its highest academic honor, the Presidents Medal for Academic Excellence, to 13 students with the highest cumulative grade point averages in the university's five colleges.
St. Thomas Aquinas alumna Malia Cali spent 10 days this summer in Kenya, where she helped build a school she raised money for the year leading up to the trip.
Through a leadership group, Cali became involved with a program called Free the Children while she was a student at the University of North Carolina. Because the university didn’t have much involvement with Free the Children, Cali took the idea and joined forces with students at other schools in a group called Student Athletes Leading Social Change.
Louisiana State University’s top graduate, or university medalist, is a Hammond woman who stemmed from Holy Ghost and St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic schools.
Hayley Kropog, a summer graduate of LSU, was the top honored student of all summer graduates on Aug. 3. She made one B in her college career and finished with a 3.979 grade point average. Kropog graduated from the school of mass communication with a focus in broadcast journalism.
