U.S. Education Secretary DeVos to Honor Kathy Riedlinger

November 7, 2018

Today (Nov. 7), the U.S. Department of Education will present Kathy Riedlinger with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her long-term leadership in transforming local public schooling.

We are very thankful for her commitment to educating our students, leading a school of excellence, and most importantly for always setting the bar high.

Riedlinger is the only school leader being given the Bell Lifetime Achievement Award, a designation given by her peers at the national and local level. Riedlinger, who became Principal at Lusher Charter School​  in 1981, now directs the largest charter school in Orleans Parish, serving more than 1800 students in grades K-12 at two campuses in Uptown New Orleans. Riedlinger is the longest continually serving Principal currently employed in a public school in Orleans Parish.

The public can watch the ceremony in Washington D.C. where Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. will also be in attendance.
