Each year Sacred Heart of Jesus School nominates one Distinguished Graduate who is committed to service in school, church, and community and for their outstanding personal and professional achievements. This year we are proud to honor Dr. Charlotte Marionneaux Barrow Bertrand, class of 1984.

Charlotte has been married to Randall Bertrand for 25 years. They have two children, Sarah ‘11 and Brandon ‘14. Sarah is attending LSU Medical School in Shreveport and Brandon is graduating from LSU this year with plans to attend Law School. During her time as a parent at Sacred Heart School, Charlotte actively engaged in school activities including Girl Scout Troop Leader, volunteering at Fall Fest, athletic events, and the annual 8th grade trip.

Sacred Heart School recognizes the sacrifices of the healthcare community and so we are thrilled to honor someone who has been working tirelessly on the frontline. A pharmacist for 25 years, Charlotte has hosted flu shot and health screening clinics for our school and church for over 10 years as well as many free diabetes educational workshops at our church. She has also served on the Pastoral Council of Ministries, Community Service Leader, Social Outreach Commissioner, Worship Commissioner, Advent Giving Tree Committee Member, and has chaperoned many Youth Group events. She continues to make Sacred Heart her home as she regularly lectors at Sunday mass.

Charlotte will be honored by the Diocese at a special dinner during Catholic Schools Week. Congratulations Charlotte! We are so #sacredheartproud of you!
