Cuillier Career Center is named for Jefferson Parish educator, Joseph A. Cuillier (1927 – 1989), Sr. Mr. Cuillier, a veteran of the United States Army, earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics and science and then a master’s degree in Administration and Supervision from Xavier University. Joseph Cuillier taught at Lincoln High School, served as assistant principal, and principal of the school, and later served as central office supervisor.
