HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Professor of Counseling Mary Brown Ballard
of Mandeville has been honored by the University of New Orleans College of Education
and Human Development with induction into its Hall of Fame.
The honor recognizes graduates of the college whose accomplishments and contributions throughout their career serve as a model and inspiration to others. The selection is made from candidates who have distinguished themselves by demonstrating a high level of professional accomplishments and making extraordinary contributions to improve teaching, leading and learning from the student level to the policy level.
Ballard, who also serves as assistant to the provost for student issues, holds two degrees from UNO: a master of education and doctorate degrees in counselor education. She joined the Southeastern faculty in 1995.
“Dr. Ballard is an integral part of our counseling program,” said Ann Carruth, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. “She is intensely dedicated to the success of her students and serves as a valuable role model in her profession.”
