Marion Bonura has lived in District 8 for 46 years and has had a career of coaching at several playgrounds and high schools in the district. He has served as the athletic director at DeLaSalle High School and is a member of the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. He received his degree in history and education from Our Lady of the Holy Cross College.

Bonura hopes to use his coaching experience to organize and unify the board. He believes his years as an educator will help him develop improvements in the classroom experience for both the children and teachers of Jefferson Parish. As a coach, Bonura knows the importance of leadership, and therefore pledges to give more autonomy to principals and school administrators. With enthusiasm, he believes we can improve our test scores and schools.

Bonura is retired from the Jefferson Parish Public School System as a coach and social studies teacher. His wife is employed by the school system, and Bonura’s three children are educators. He has four grandchildren.
