Derek C. Hebert (BS ‘12) & Rachel Benoit Hebert (BGS, 10, MED ’13, MAT ‘15)

Derek and Rachel Hebert met in the College of Education at Nicholls. He was visiting with his mom before one of his classes when Rachel stopped by her office to ask a question. After Derek left the office for class, Rachel commented to his mom, “Eww, your son uses tobacco? That’s gross. I would never date a guy like that!” Rachel now notes that the well-used phrase “never say never,” is no longer just a saying to her. The couple began dating in April 2013 and married in April 2016. Derek is a land surveyor for Morris P. Hebert in Houma, La. Rachel works for St. James Parish Schools as a sixth grade reading or ELA teacher. They enjoy vacationing twice a year – one week for each of their birthdays. They are also planning to go to a drive-in movie theater for Valentine’s Day this year. Derek and Rachel share, “We do not have children yet, but when we do they will be Colonels!”
