First Day of School for



Coach Valdez Enlightens 6th Ward Students


On Friday, April 29, Coach Valdez, AD of St James High Wildcats and Mr. Eltonary Oubre, Counselor and Coach at St James High, volunteered their time to speak to some of the students at Sixth Ward Elementary.  He emphasized the value of education, the seriousness of academics, and character as it relates to extracurricular activities that many students look forward to in high school.  Emphasis was greatly placed on understanding that Student Athletes are children who are students first and athletes second.  He stressed that as a coach, he wants the best in order to be the best and one of his goals is to seek well-rounded individuals who are capable of being better and wanting better so that the team can be the best.  While athletics is fun and enjoyable, it isn’t first on the priority list.  Academics and character are top priorities.  Mr. Oubre reiterated many of Coach Valdez’s topics and supported them with real life examples and personal testimonies that brought the message home for all students.  The Sixth Ward students and all who listened attentively, heard and understood the heartfelt, motivating, and encouraging message. We greatly appreciate Coach Valdez and Mr. Oubre.
