About Rosemary T. Wong
A native of Louisiana, the former Rosemary Tripi matriculated through the Jefferson Parish Public Schools, earning high marks the entire way. The same drive and astuteness that she demonstrated as a young student has never wavered, enabling the now Dr. Rosemary Tripi Wong to achieve a list of accomplishments that would leave most people breathless.
As an elementary teacher working in the East Baton Rouge Parish Schools, Rosemary struggled with managing a classroom while trying to engender student learning and academic success. In 1976, she met Dr. Harry K. Wong, a fellow educator.
