HPHS Grad Sworn in as Federal Judge

Ever wonder what Topeka Public Schools grads are up to today? One of them was recently sworn in as a federal judge!


Erin Wilder-Doomes, a 1990 Highland Park High School graduate, is the newest federal magistrate judge of the US District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. She had previously been a member of Baton Rouge law firms where she gained experience in both civil and commercial litigation.


Judge Wilder-Doomes graduated from the University of Iowa, where she earned a BS in psychology, and from Louisiana State University, where she earned her law degree. TPS is proud of the solid foundation we provided for her to expand her knowledge in institutes of higher learning.


In addition to the education she received in Topeka Public Schools, Wilder-Doomes also received a college scholarship from our partner, Westar Energy. She was awarded the Western Resources (now Wester Energy) College Scholarship for four years.


Congrats, Judge Wilder-Doomes-- we're so proud of your accomplishments!!
