One Proud Papa
I am honored to be the father of three great daughters. This month, one of them graduates from college.
In May the family will travel to the University of Mississippi in Oxford to attend Miranda’s graduation. She has earned Dean’s and Chancellor’s Honor Roll designations and will graduate with a bachelor of arts in elementary education, with an endorsement in special education and an emphasis in English and social studies. She is also a member of Delta Gamma, and the Kappa Delta Pi and Sigma Alpha Lambda honor societies.
As you can tell, I’m extremely proud of her accomplishments and know she’ll make a great teacher, and I’m really looking forward to her return home – she’s a true New Orleans girl.
Over the past 10 years, many business, political and civic leaders in New Orleans have made great strides in changing the economic climate. Because of their hard work, there are excellent opportunities for young people to come back home following college. I thank all of them for paving the way for not only my daughter, but for all New Orleans’ young people to return home for a career. I will do whatever I can to continue the mission of bringing our talent home.
Miranda, your parents are proud of you. Welcome home.
