District 7: Billy North

  • Billy North Coach Billy North retired in 2017 after 30 years as an Educator, Leader, and Athletic Director in the Jefferson Parish Public School System. He served his tenure at Boudreaux Elementary, John Ehret High School, Riverdale High School, and Roosevelt Middle School. Coach North was raised in Bucktown and graduated from Brother Martin High School, University of New Orleans (B.A.), and University of Holy Cross (M.A).

    While in JP Schools, Coach North served on various local and state committees, including Pass to Play, which emphasizes the importance of academic achievement for athletes. He demonstrated his deep commitment to the communities through the mentorship of his students and through the relationships with the families. Although coaching high school football was a passion for Coach North, his proudest accomplishments are the facilitation of the signing of college scholarships for over 100 players throughout his years, which allowed his players to obtain college degrees while playing the sport they loved.

    Coach North is a dedicated husband and father who resides in Harahan and is honored to represent District 7. Becoming a school board member is fulfilling a lifelong dream to proudly represent the interests of the Jefferson Parish communities in public education.
