Career Day 2015
St. Thomas More welcomed 110 alumni as guest speakers for Career Day. Students attended sessions that highlighted numerous career paths and opportunities. Senior, junior, and sophomore students were asked to identify their top three career choices. The counseling department scheduled each student to attend three sessions based on their top three preferences. Career choices included: agriculture, allied health, applied arts, architecture/construction, sales/marketing/public relations, business/finance, communications, creative and performing arts, education, engineering, government/public administration, hospitality/tourism, human services, law, medicine, and technology.
Freshmen were treated to a special day as they were motivated by former STM Campus Minister, John Listi, along with STM alum Amy Jones ’92, and founder and CEO of Walk-on’s Enterprises, Brandon Landry. The day ended with a luncheon for all alumni guest speakers sponsored by Patrick Kane ’97, Machine Tool; Bailey Shivers ‘95, Shivers Homes; and Denny ’98, Matt ’99, Michael ’04 and Petey ’06 Smith of Acadiana Bottling.
Special thanks to our Counseling Department and our alumni director, Danny Broussard for organizing this great event.

St. Thomas More Catholic High School Alumni Association hosted a welcome luncheon for alumni and their incoming freshmen Cougars. More than 75 students and parents were in attendance along with special guests: Cinde Sulik, Doug Taylor, Terry Tidwell, and Danny Broussard, who have served on STM faculty since the doors opened in 1982.
Alumni Director, Coach Danny Broussard entertained the group with STM trivia questions, such as “What was the nearest fast food restaurant to STM and where was it located?” “How did the cougar mascot arrive to the football game on our 25th Anniversary?" Prizes were awarded to those with the correct answer.
Guest speaker, Doug Taylor delivered a speech (that only Coach Taylor can deliver) and mentioned how honored he is as a teacher that parents who graduated from STM, want the same experience for their children. Taylor said, "A school develops deep tradition by parents and children attending and eventually 3rd and 4th generations share the same educational experience." Taylor, a 33 year faculty member said, "Moving from Mississippi right out of college without any family in Louisiana, STM has become my family, my home and is a great place to be."
Coach Danny closed by saying this first generation of Cougar legacies now makeup a new history at St. Thomas More and we look forward to celebrating this tradition.
