Vermilion Parish School Board swears in new member

Posted: Updated:

Julio Moreno is now the newest member of the Vermilion Parish School Board. 

Wednesday night, the board rescinded Luddy Herpins son, Shay Herpin, after finding out he did not live in District A.

This meeting came with emotional community members and school board members. The decision to vote Moreno in also caused several people to walk out of the meeting.

"I hope to follow in his footsteps which is impossible, but hopefully we can move in the right direction for schools and the children," Moreno said. 

Several people said Luddy Herpin's dying wish was to have a family member serve out the remainder of his term, but board president Tony Fontana said he doesn't believe that at all.

"He has a great wife that always came to the meetings, and understood. he has three kids in education. who is more qualified than my mom to take over the position." Shay Herpin said

Moreno will serve on the board until the upcoming election in March, and he said he plans to run for a permanent seat.
