Life's most persistent and urgent question

"What are you doing for others?"

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, over 50 New Orleans Fellows, staff, and friends showed up to help Success Prep Academy. Over the course of four hours, volunteers:

  • created two incredible murals in the cafeteria

  • painted the benches and tables outside by the playground and blacktop

  • set up four new portable basketball hoops

  • touched up four classrooms with new paint

"It was so great to see the reaction of students and staff this morning," said Success Prep Director Niloy Gangopadhyay today. "It really made the day special for everyone! I feel extremely lucky that we were chosen to be the site."
