Busy is as busy does, and 2018 has been a busy year for The Project and its staff. In between the big move in May, the open house in June, getting ready for the 30th Annual Justice For All Ball, and working for our clients – staff members were individually hitting some high notes! Here are just a few highlights from the year so far.
Executive Director C.C. Kahr was accepted into the 2018 Bryan Bell Metropolitan Leadership Forum.
Managing Director for Volunteer Engagement Kathleen Legendre will serve as Co-Chair of the Pro Bono Subcommittee for the Access to Justice Committee of the Louisiana State Bar Association.
Intake Coordinator Ingrid Autin received her Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies and passed her notary exam. She is now a commissioned notary, which benefits The Project and its clients.
We delighted to welcome Rosalie Ramm as our new part-time Self-Help Desk Coordinator to help self-represented litigants find what they need at the CDC and 24th JD Self-Help Desks. Rosalie comes to us after years working at both Adams and Reese and Baker Donelson.
We said goodbye to our Serve Louisiana Volunteer Coordinator, Amanda Beck. Amanda completed her successful tenure at PBP in July. As Volunteer Coordinator, she recruited and trained volunteers for the Self-Help Desk at Orleans CDC and the 24th JDC. She’s preparing for the LSAT and hopes to attend law school in Fall 2019. We wish Amanda the best of luck in this endeavor. We’ll welcome two new Volunteer Coordinators this September, who will carry on the great work initiated by Amanda. Read Amanda's good-bye.
