About the Candidate

​Dr. Vickie Tolliver Auguste, Ed.D.

Dr. Auguste, a product of the East Baton Rouge Parish Public School System, is a native of Baton Rouge and a resident of Ascension Parish. She and her husband Bruce, have four adult children and one minor child who attends high school in the Ascension Parish Public School System. They have six grandchildren and two godchildren. Dr. Auguste is a registered Independent, having chosen to be non-partisan, because when it comes to children she doesn’t see political parties. 

Dr. Auguste has an undergraduate degree in sociology, a master’s degree in social science and a master’s degree in education administration, all acquired from Southern University and Agricultural & Mechanical College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She earned a doctorate degree in educational leadership from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana. Dr. Auguste has worked in the field of education for over two decades, serving as a classroom teacher and later as an assistant principal. She is currently an educational diagnostician.

Dr. Auguste is very passionate about the public school system. She will work hard to develop equitable policies that govern the statewide operations of public and non-public schools; increase accountability measures, particularly for charter schools; place a moratorium on the expansion of charter schools; and, increase oversight of the voucher system, if she’s not successful in getting it abolished. 

Dr. Auguste is open to discussing the issues of public school education and welcome your input. Please feel free to contact her at (225) 320-1168. You may also follow her Facebook page – @drvickie4bese.
