Dr. Xanthe Y. Seals

As the newly appointed Mayor for the Town of Homer, I am elated to serve the citizens of the Town of Homer and surrounding area (Claiborne Parish), and to work with an innovative and spirited Town Council in the directives of our township. These are exciting times filled with changes all around us. To you, our citizens, I want to personally thank you for enlisting me to serve the Town of Homer into the next era of our rich history. Only with your support can Homer fulfill its potential holistically.

I am a lifetime resident of Homer, LA; along with my being a 1989 graduate of Homer High School. Highly well-educated and professionally inclined to serve the constituents of Homer, LA, as well as surrounding areas – Claiborne Parish, I

Also, I hold a Certificate of Theology from the Interdenominational Seminary in Atlanta, GA. My professional experiences are diverse since that I have worked in various areas of higher education at several universities, along with humbling experiences at the local Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
