ALEXANDRIA, La. (Holy Savior Menard High School) - Holy Savior Menard Central High School will have a new face helping lead the way when the students return. New to Menard, but not to high quality education, Dwayne Lemoine has over 30 years of educational leadership experience in central Louisiana.
With core beliefs that center around transformative education, civic responsibility and personal empowerment, Menard will benefit from Lemoine’s strategic background and vision. Menard Principal, Joel Desselle, is looking forward to working with Lemoine because of his proven track record in this region.
As Superintendent of Avoyelle’s Parish, Dwayne helped create a system for significant academic and social growth of more than 6,000 students and maintained a balanced budget in a district where the per pupil funding is one of the lowest in the state. During his tenure as Principal of Pineville High School, Lemoine led the school to become the highest performing public high school in the district, as well as provided direction and guidance for the design and construction of a new $14 million-dollar school facility.
A Master of Education degree from Northwestern State University and many years of coaching and teaching experience, along with numerous awards and honors make Lemoine a uniquely qualified candidate to join the Menard family and continue raising the standards of excellence that have been established throughout the 125 years of Catholic secondary education in central Louisiana.
According to Lemoine, “I am grateful and honored to be given the opportunity to work with the Holy Savior Menard community in advancing the school's mission."
Welcome to the Holy Savior Menard family Mr. Lemoine.
