"There is so much I could say about the talents, competencies, and professional accomplishments of Mia Edwards. She has led countless successful initiatives at each juncture of her career. I admire her genuine passion and courage to embrace the mission, calling, and purpose of our work in education. She successfully supported ongoing effective practices, created change where it was needed, and could stay the course even in difficult times while leading others to stay the course, as well. She is a great example of leadership in so many ways. But most of all, she is just a good person that genuinely cares about others. She will be missed but also warmly remembered for all that she has done to make Ascension Public Schools a great place for kids and a great place to work," said Superintendent David Alexander.

They once again endured many challenges and obstacles to stay focused and engaged, and that is a testament to their resilience and the family support that surrounded them. We believe that the 2021-22 school year was a successful and productive one, and we are confident that our students gave it their all as they laid the foundation for a future of their choice in the years to come.
