A Pioneer in Education

Dr. Etoile DuBard
1921 - 2003
Founding Director & Professor Emerita


Founding Director and Professor Emerita Dr. Etoile DuBard passed away on November 4, 2003 at her home in Hattiesburg. Growing up in DuBard, Mississippi, in Grenada County, little could Etoile DuBard ever have known what interesting developments life had in store for her.

From World War II service in the Navy, to elementary school teaching, to serving as a pioneering "speech correctionist" in the state of Mississippi and author in her field, Etoile's vibrant and varied life provided richness for so many who crossed her path.

From a multitude of students faced with language-speech and hearing challenges, to the university students who learned under her guidance and direction, Etoile's scholarship, compassion, and generosity is reflected in the lives and work of all who had the privilege of calling her teacher, professor, mentor, and friend.
