Students Tackle Real-World Problems in New Orleans

March 29, 2007 — Eighteen months after hurricane Katrina devastated the City of New Orleans, the Kennedy School continues a multi-year commitment to collaborate with residents of the neighborhood of Broadmoor to help bring their community back. Students and staff are in New Orleans this week to lend support to the ongoing process of redevelopment.

LaToya Cantrell, president of the Broadmoor Improvement Association, reviews the community meeting minutes taken by Daniel Radcliffe(MPAID2).

“The students’ help is invaluable — not only their brain power, but the momentum and the hope that they instill in residents. We feel that we’re not left behind, there are people who care about us and want to be a part of history. Because what we’re doing now — rebuilding our neighborhood from the ground up — it’s history, and they’re a part of it with us.” — LaToya Cantrell
