Alumni Highlight

At E D White Cardinal Music, we strive to empower our students and alumni to reach their fullest potential. Each month, we will feature one of our alumni to share their story and accomplishments.

This month, we are excited to feature Mr. Tim Robichaux. Mr. Tim was the band director prior to the current director, Mrs. Daigle. Mr. Tim has been the president of E D White since 2014 and has been responsible for the improved facilities of Cardinal Music. Through his hard work and dedication, Mr. Tim has helped shape our school into what it is today. We invite you to read his inspiring testimonial.

My 5 years in the Cardinal Vanguard were very important to me in my life journey. Not only did I meet my soulmate, Michele Gann; but I also learned many life lessons - discipline, teamwork, patience, leadership, love and faith. I was lucky enough to be in the Cardinal Vanguard in the early years, when the foundation for excellence was established. Some of my favorite memories were winning a contest at Tulane stadium and performing for half-time of a Tulane game, winning reserve grand champions at Showcase and placing 5th at a BOA competition in Houston. Of course, the bus rides and going away for band camp are high on the memory list as well. Finally, I was fortunate enough to lead the Cardinal Vanguard for 10 years. Those memories are too numerous to mention. I am proud that today our Cardinal Vanguard continues the excellence established long ago and more importantly, prepares young people for life.
