The honor is given only to graduates who have demonstrated exceptional service to the field of education. It recognizes Bordelon for accomplishments and contributions throughout her career.

“It is truly an honor to be inducted into the University of New Orleans College of Education and Human Development’s Hall of Fame. As a first generation college graduate, the University of New Orleans and the College of Education and Human Development provided me with opportunities that as a teenager growing up in the New Orleans area I did not think possible,” Bordelon said.

The Hall of Fame selection criteria states graduates will only be considered if they have “distinguished themselves by demonstrating the highest level of professional accomplishments, and making extraordinary contributions to improve teaching, leading, and learning from the student level to the policy level.”

Bordelon is appreciative of the influence the University of New Orleans has had on her. “As a three-time alum, the impact UNO and the COEHD has had on my life has been tremendous. Throughout my teaching and administrative career, I have been able to apply what I learned through my experiences in the College of Education and Human Development to a myriad of situations. I very proudly share that UNO prepared me well.”
