Former LSD Director, Dr. Monita G. Hara, Has Passed Away


The following is a message from Mr. Kevin Lemoine, Superintendent of the Board Special Schools.

It is with deep regret that I announce the passing of Dr. Monita Hara just after noon Thursday, February 23, 2012.  Monita was a great friend, and an inspiring educator who will be sorely missed by her LSDVI family.

 I have really enjoyed the almost two years that I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Monita. 

Funeral services will take place in Birmingham, Alabama. When arrangements have been made available to us, we will post that information on the website.

Please keep Monita in your prayers.


Kevin Lemoine
