2020 Alumni Hall of Fame
On Friday, November 6, 2020 PBS inducted five new members to the Alumni Eagle Hall of Fame. We are honored to have these alumni representing PBS in their communities.
The Alumni Eagle Hall of Fame Award in Abundant Life is given to an alumnus who exemplifies a Christ-centered life and is considered an example and inspiration to all those around them. This year’s recipient is Lisa Blair Mayet.
Lisa Mayet graduated in 2009 as a 13 year senior of Parkview Baptist School. After high school, she attended LSU, where she earned her degree in Psychology.
During her time at LSU, Lisa served as youth minister of her church. She was also a member of the first pledge class of Sigma Phi Lambda, a Christian sorority on campus, and served as chaplain her senior year. While serving the youth group and her sorority sisters, Lisa felt the Lord call her to become a mental health counselor.
She married Ryan Mayet in 2014 and graduated from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary with her masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2015. After serving in other counseling positions, she returned to PBS in 2017 to serve as the Middle and High School Counselor.
Lisa is very passionate about working with the Middle and High School age group. She believes in meeting students where they are and using God’s word in her interventions to lead students to a healthier place emotionally, spiritually, and in their relationships with others.
Lisa would like to thank all the faculty and staff at Parkview for always going the extra mile to support students. She loves working in a Christian environment where students and faculty can support, pray, and encourage one another in their walk with Christ.
The Alumni Eagle Hall of Fame Award in Academics is given to an alumnus who has excelled in academics, either as a student or teacher, or significantly contributed to the academic development in their community. This year’s recipient is Dr. Jeremy Burnham.
Dr. Jeremy Burnham enrolled at Parkview Baptist School in the second grade and remained an Eagle until graduation as a National Merit Finalist in May of 1999. After playing many years of football at PBS, Burnham walked on to the LSU Football team where he earned Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, Athletic Director’s Cup, Coaches Award for highest GPA, and Varsity Letterman honors. This is also where his appreciation for the profession of sports medicine came to fruition.
Following graduation, Burnham enrolled in Medical School at LSU Shreveport where he was named Outstanding Orthopedic Surgery student. He then went on to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for orthopedic surgery residency where he earned Outstanding Orthopedic Resident awards, followed by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for his sports medicine fellowship, where he served as a team physician for several collegiate and professional athletic teams. After years of being away, Burnham moved back to his home state to begin his journey.
He was immediately hired at the Bone and Joint Clinic where he started an athletic training and sports medicine outreach program. He also served as faculty for the Baton Rouge General Sports Medicine Fellowship and was honored with the Fellow’s Choice Award. In September of 2019, Dr. Burnham was named the Medical Director of the Sports Medicine Program for Ochsner Baton Rouge and the interim Section Head of the Orthopedic Surgery Department.
With this leadership role, Dr. Burnham has been able to branch out into the community and expand his vision and support for local student athletes at over 25 local area schools and colleges. He has served on our campus over the last three years and this past year was named the Director of Sports Medicine Services at Parkview Baptist School. He has developed a foundation with our coaches, athletes, trainers, and partners, and has streamlined the communication process for all involved. He maintains a busy orthopedic and sports medicine practice at Ochsner – The Grove, and continues to remain active in knee injury research and in medical education. He is grateful to Parkview for helping him to develop a strong foundation, and for showing him the importance of both academics and sports participation.
The Alumni Eagle Hall of Fame Award in Arts is given to an alumnus who has excelled in the arts and has significantly impacted other individuals and their community to excel in the arts. This year we have two recipients, Brandon Berrio and Cody Worsham.

Berrio led the LSU social media team that was recognized by Sports Business Journal as the “Best in Social Media” at the Sports Business Awards. LSU became the first college to be honored with a win since the SBA began in 2009.
Berrio worked with the most talented college social team in the country that created content that set records for views and engagement numbers. He was in charge of strategy for all content for LSU Football ranging from hype videos to in-depth storytelling on Heisman winner and No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow. Berrio has worked with nearly every LSU team since starting as a student assistant in 2012. Berrio graduated with his bachelor’s degree in communications in 2015 and masters in kinesiology in 2019.
