Honore’ CUSA students attend NOLA for Life event
- 5/26/2014 -
All 14 of the students enrolled in the Honore' Center for Undergraduate Student Achievement at SUNO attended a recent fundraiser to support Mitch Landrieu's NOLA For Life initiatives. The group was sponsored by N.O.C.C.I. and its president Dottie Belleto. Developed in May 2012, NOLA FOR LIFE is Landrieu’s comprehensive murder reduction strategy. Recognizing that law enforcement alone cannot solve the murder problem, NOLA FOR LIFE takes a holistic approach to get to the root of the problem and advances initiatives in five main categories including: Stop the Shooting; Invest in Prevention; Promote Jobs and Opportunity; Improve the NOPD; and Get Involved and Rebuild Neighborhoods. The Honore' Center is a pilot project designed to reverse the trend of fewer African-American male students attending and graduating from college and to increase the pool of black male classroom teachers.
