Serving our communities is a commitment our faculty members take seriously, and we are pleased to share news about how they are extending their expertise beyond the classroom and into nonprofit organizations and agencies. Professor of Practice Dr. Deidre Hayes, LCSW-BACS, has been named the new Board Chair of Covenant House New Orleans.
Executive Director Jim Kelly, who had previously announced his retirement next month, expressed his support and appreciation. “Deidre has been a friend and advocate for the young people at Covenant House since the first day we opened our doors thirty-three years ago,” said Kelly. “Alongside incoming Executive Director Rheneisha Robertson, the young people of Covenant House will be in excellent and loving hands for years to come.”
