The Guillebeaux-Arceneaux Spirit Award program is an ETHS tradition, where staff celebrate the work and dedicated spirit of support staff in the high school. The award recognizes the spirit of dedication to all ETHS students, loyalty and support for colleagues, and commitment to family and community, values that were expressed and reflected by the life of former ETHS employees, Ernestine Guillbeaux and Sharon Arceneaux. Award recipients are selected by the Spirit Award Selection Committee from a larger group of nominations written by fellow employees
