Students enrolled in the Honore' Center for Undergraduate Student Achievement at Southern University New Orleans visited the Hyatt Regency New Orleans for its "Manhood Monday" activity November 11, 2013. Nineteen Honore' Center students were guests of Michael Smith, the hotel's general manager. Smith, who oversaw the $250-million renovation to the Hyatt New Orleans property following heavy damage by Hurricane Katrina, spoke to the students about his 35-year career in the hotel industry and shared his personal story of perseverance and achieving success against overwhelming odds. During a four-course complimentary dinner, the hotel staff and Smith, provided professional development tips on dining etiquette. Pictured are Honore' Center students with Smith.
