Holly and Alex Husser, from Abbeville and Husser, Louisiana respectively, have been married for twelve years.  Alex graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering and then worked in Venezuela for Schlumberger.  Holly met Alex when he transferred to Lafayette.  She moved to Beaumont and earned a degree in dental hygiene from Lamar University while Alex was working offshore and in New Orleans.  They made a home in Mandeville after marrying, but were soon moved to Sugar Land, TX with their first child on the way.  Holly and Alex found River Pointe Church, in Richmond, and became active members.  Alex worked as a global product champion, which required frequent international travel, while Holly worked as a freelance dental hygienist.  Alex joined Alta Mesa and they continued to grow their family.  Holly became the membership director at River Pointe.  They also created Indigeo Virtus, a startup that performed like most startups, to provide SAAS for the O&G industry.  Alex and Holly were active with River Pointe as well as non-profit organizations in the Richmond area.  In April 2019, as Alta Mesa stumbled financially, Alex was laid off.  After much job hunting, prayer, and prioritization, Alex and Holly decided to move back to Louisiana.  Alex is currently a partner with Diamond S Builders, a general contractor business founded 25 years ago by his father.  Holly and Alex seek God first, strive for excellence in everything they do, and work diligently to instill these values in their four children.

Elizabeth Cash, M.Ed

Academic Advisor

Elizabeth Cash along with Shane, her husband of eight years, have been Adolesco Prep supporters since its very inception! We are blessed and grateful to have her as our Academic Advisor and as an encouraging friend and sister in Christ. As a professional educator of 14 years, this Tangi native earned her Master’s in Special Education from the University of New Orleans after graduating from Southeastern University. Mrs. Cash is not only a joyful and accomplished educator of all grades, she is also proficient in deaf education, American Sign Language and working with diverse populations of students. She is a dedicated and enthusiastic instructor able to effectively interact with students on a variety of academic levels. Her leadership skills and knowledge enable her to maintain excellent relationships with students, parents, faculty and administrators.

 

Elizabeth’s time working as part of the Washington Parish Administration showcased her dedication, expertise and ability to create positive change when she was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2010. While working in the Washington Parish School System, Mrs. Cash created, implemented and directed various policies and procedures and also developed and delivered professional training for teachers.  She is above and beyond accomplished in coordinating Parish-wide curriculum and standards, while also presenting at educational conferences.

 

In 2012, Elizabeth moved to Georgia where she taught at a distinctly Christian school and where she would once again prove valuable for her leadership and innovation. Bethlehem Christian Academy was able to introduce their first virtual classroom through Elizabeth’s direct design and implementation and she successfully launched their ASL program. Elizabeth was not just a valuable asset to students, but became a consultant working with parents one-on-one for student’s individual needs. She also became a leader among faculty, creating instructional plans that she helped fellow teachers incorporate into their curriculum. Because of the faith-based nature of this school, Elizabeth was able to bring her love for ministry into her professional realm by developing policies and standards for a mentoring program called “P31 for Teens.” Reaching out to others with the love and word of God is one of her strongest callings and she enjoys speaking to large groups such as women’s conferences.

 

Living in Tangipahoa once again, Elizabeth has been homeschooling her son and daughter for the last three years using the classical approach among other esteemed curriculum models. She enjoys camping, hiking, leading Bible studies and most of all, spending time with her family. Elizabeth is a natural born leader, extremely passionate about education and raising up a generation of students for the glory of God.
