Additionally, EA will induct two individuals into the school Wall of Fame and one into the Athletic Hall of Fame.

The East Ascension High School Spartans (5-2, 1-0) are ready for homecoming this weekend. They will take on Broadmoor High Friday, October 13 at 7 p.m. Pictured are this year's homecoming courts.

Additionally, EA will induct two individuals into the school Wall of Fame and one into the Athletic Hall of Fame.

Mrs. Lisa Bacala will be added to the Wall of Fame. Mrs. Bacala is a recent retiree of the Ascension Parish School Board after serving 31 years as a teacher, assistant principal and director of secondary education of our parish. She said she feels that giving back to EA is part of her life’s work. Lisa continues to be very involved in community service groups that impact East Ascension. As a member of the Rotary Club, she participates in School Tool drives and Ascension Fund Grants. She also works to upgrade the Ascension Parish Library and the dual enrollment programs between EA and RPCC.

Next, Judge Alvin Turner will be added to the Wall of Fame. As a member of the East Ascension class of 1973, Judge Turner has spent the past forty-plus years as a dedicated public servant in Ascension Parish. Judge Turner holds the distinction of being the first African/American assistant district attorney for the 23rd Judicial District and the first African/American to be elected as a District Court Judge for the 23rd Judicial District, as well.

Judge Turner credits East Ascension High School in playing an integral role in his educational and social development. His children are also graduates of EA and his son, Councilman Tyler Turner is currently a part of the faculty and coaching staff.

Last, Bailey Landry will be inducted into her alma mater’s Hall of Fame. Landry is a 2013 graduate of East Ascension High and a 2017 graduate of Louisiana State University with a degree in sports administration, communications, and business. Bailey was a four-year letterman in softball and was named All District, All Metro, All State and an All American due to her exploits on the diamond. She was a big reason EA made three State Tournament appearances. The class of 2013 elected her as their president and she also represented her class on the Homecoming and Prom courts. Landry recently completed her career as a LSU Tiger where she started all four years and led her team to three Women’s College World Series appearances.

She was a two-time All American and holds the single season hits record as well as the all-time hits record for the Fighting Tigers. She was the fifth overall pick in the 2017 National Pro Fastpitch draft and was named to the All NPF team and chosen as the Rookie of the Year after her first season. Additionally, Landry is most proud of recently being awarded the Jennie Finch Award for excellence, sportsmanship, leadership, and humility.
