The Louisiana School Public Relations Association has named Jackie Tisdell, the public information officer for Ascension Public Schools, its first Communicator of the Year Award.

The honor reflects Tisdell’s outstanding contributions in leadership, communication, professionalism and community involvement throughout 2023, a news release said.

Under Tisdell’s leadership, Ascension Public Schools underwent a district communication audit by the National School Public Relations Association, positioning the district as a national model, the release said.

Tisdell also played a crucial role in the success of the “Achieve Success Together” campaign, securing an 81% voter approval rate for critical property tax renewals. Her strategic communication skills were pivotal in navigating a districtwide redrawing of attendance zones, culminating in a unanimous School Board decision in November 2023, the release added.

Tisdell’s leadership extended beyond the school district as she spearheaded the formation of LASPRA, serving as its founding president. Her efforts in forging partnerships with key educational organizations, commitment to professional development and dedication to community involvement make her an exemplary leader in the field, the release said.

She participates in Volunteer Ascension board of directors, the Leadership Ascension Foundation and Ascension Early Childhood Ready Start Network.

Tisdell’s recognition as the LASPRA Communicator of the Year automatically enters her as Louisiana’s nominee for NSPRA’s School Communicator of the Year Award this spring.
