Blackmon teaches in her hometown of Belle Chasse at the second-grade level and was recently named Plaquemines Parish Elementary School Teacher of the Year.
"I'm just excited about being honored at the game tonight," she said. "It's a great privilege to be in front of all of these people as a teacher. Chevron contributes a lot to our school. I've worked with a Chevron tutor each year at our school. They're a big part of our community.
Blackmon, a 13-year teacher, enjoys seeing her students learning and growing each day.
"I love teaching kids. I enjoy working with children," she said. "You really have to like that age group and just to help a child learn something and seeing that light bulb come on is amazing."
Seago, a Chalmette native, teaches sixth-grade math at Belle Chasse Middle School, leading her class to a top-six rank in the state during her tenure.
"I decided to go into teaching to help students become better academically and athletically, as well," she said. "I coach basketball and volleyball at Belle Chasse Middle School, as well, and I love working with students. Seeing their progress from August to May is incredible."
Similar to Blackmon, Seago feels very grateful to have a community leader like Chevron recognize teachers' efforts.
"I think Chevron is working so hard to have a positive impact on the community and give local schools they tools they need to help these children be successful," she said. "It's a pleasure and an honor to be recognized by Chevron. I owe this honor to my students. They're the ones that got me here with their hard work."
