EBR District 7 - Mike Gaudet
Mr. Mike Gaudet was chosen by Stand for Children Louisiana parent and educator endorsement members based on his commitment to improve on-grade level reading for all students through literacy initiatives, and a strong commitment to quality early learning programs.
Parent and educator members were impressed by Mr. Gaudet’s commitment to holding schools and leaders accountable for student success and his pledge to improve all schools in East Baton Rouge Parish.
The endorsement committee was encouraged by both his experience in the business world and previous board experience as a founding member of THRIVE Baton Rouge and the current interim District 7 board member. Endorsement members were impressed by Mr. Gaudet’s commitment to carry on the legacy of his parents, who were both educators and his involvement in the community through the Mornings with Mike program.
Stand for Children Louisiana relies on a thorough parent and educator led endorsement process during critical elections for kids to guide the organization’s support for the most student-centered candidates.
