Nicholls State University honored 156 high school teachers from 67 area schools on Wednesday, Dec. 2, with the “Who Made a Difference” award.
Winners were chosen by Nicholls scholarship recipients – each of whom had graduated from the various schools – after having been contacted by the Nicholls Office of Admissions. Students were asked the following questions: “What teacher had the greatest impact on your life so far? What teacher motivated you to pursue your dreams? What teacher helped you become the person you are today? What teacher made the difference for you?” Pictured are the award winners from South Lafourche High School.
