Eual J. “Teeny” Landry, Sr., teacher and principal at Hahnville High School, was recognized as an innovator who produced positive results and advancements in education during his 45 years of service. His use of motion pictures as teaching tools was considered progressive and ahead of its time. He served in the military in World War II, was elected parish delegate for the 1974 Louisiana Constitutional Convention, appointed a member of the 1976 Home Rule Charter Commission, and appointed a member of the St. Charles Parish Police Jury for several years. Eual J. Landry, Sr. Middle School in Hahnville was named to honor his achievements.
Don Raymond, an outstanding student athlete, transferred to Hahnville High School from Carver High in the ninth grade through the “freedom of choice” option. He lettered in four sports and was on the 1968 Class AA football team. His life was cut tragically short due to injuries received in a traffic collision on the River Road in Hahnville. Out of respect for his achievements as an individual, a student, and an athlete, each year the Don Raymond Track and Field Relays are held at Hahnville High School in his honor.
