Alumna of the Year, Shari Schiro DeVille '83
Archbishop Chapelle High School is honored to name Shari as the 2022 Alumna of the Year because of her constant support of our school and her loyalty to green & white. We all appreciate Shari's support over the years and are thrilled to honor her with our 2022 Alumna of the Year award!
Shari Schiro DeVille graduated from Archbishop Chapelle in 1983. She
continued her education at LSU in Baton Rouge and LSU School of
Dentistry, receiving her bachelors of science in dental hygiene in 1987.
She practiced as a registered dental hygienist until 2003, when she took a
position as office manager at Kenner Endodontics and is still currently
employed there today.
In 1993 Shari married Barry DeVille. They have two daughters, Giavanna,
Class of 2014, and Francesca, Class of 2017. They are proud that both of
their daughters graduated from LSU and are working on their doctorates in
nurse anesthesia and dentistry at LSU.
While her daughters attended St.Ann, Shari volunteered at the fair, with
their brownie and girl scout troops and spoke to the preK classes for dental
education week. When Giavanna got accepted to Chapelle, Shari
immediately got involved. She served on the Parent’s Club Board
throughout her daughters’ time at Chapelle and held the position of co
president for 2 years. She served on the gala, craft fair,prom fest and
principal search committee and has been a speaker at career day.
Shari has been her class chair representative, keeping her classmates
informed and has planned their reunions. Shari has been on the St.
Joseph Altar committee since it started. Shari and her sister Gina, prepare
the Pasta Milanese using ingredients and recipes donated by their parents,
that is served on St. Joseph’s Day to the public.
When Francesca graduated, Shari was not ready to end her service to
Chapelle. She accepted a spot on the alum board and is still currently a
board member at large.
