Sherry LeBoeuf, the counselor at J. B. Martin Middle School, was named the Louisiana Middle School Counselor of the Year by the Louisiana Counseling Association.

The LCA gives the award to someone who has made outstanding contributions to school counselors or to education with special emphasis on the school counseling profession.


LeBoeuf has been the only counselor at JBM for four years. She serves about 600 students and does everything from individual counseling to group counseling and guidance lessons to entire classes. Her counseling topics range from dealing with ADHD and making friends to preparing for high school and conflict resolution.


LeBoeuf recieved her degree from Southeastern Louisiana University and is a licensed professional counselor. She is a native of Norco.


“I’m definitely proud to be a counselor in St. Charles Parish,” she said. “It’s great to be a part of this district.”


She said that St. Charles uses the American School Counselor Association model for counseling, which she really likes.


LeBoeuf interned at what is now Creative Family Solutions, working with people in the parish. She said the difference between that job and her school job is getting to see the daily improvement in her students.


“I get to see them every day and I get to see them make those positive changes,” she said.


LeBoeuf was nominated for the award by J.B. Martin principal Erin Raiford.


“It was a wonderful feeling to get this award,” LeBoeuf said. “I have a really great boss.”


LeBoeuf was recognized at a recent Louisiana School Counselor Association conference in New Orleans.


She is currently working on becoming a licensed professional counselor supervisor.
