Assistant Directors

Conrad “Rosco” Chura moved down to New Orleans after volunteering in the area while working with AmeriCorps NCCC.  Originally from Michigan he enjoys the wonderful,  warm weather of the south.  He enjoys playing guitar, piano and harmonica and is taking vocal lessons, but if I were you I wouldn’t ask him to sing.  He will be attending Delgado Community College in the fall to pursue a medical technician career.  He is very excited to be here working with Roots of Success Summer Camp and cannot wait for the camp to open on June 14th.

While there she competed on the world renowned Forensics Team and served as an officer on the executive board for Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity. She has a love for her community and shows this through her mentoring program, Just Save One which focuses on teaching children the importance of an education and how to be healthier individuals. She currently serves as the Community Outreach officer for Crescent City Shapers at the University of New Orleans where she is working on her Master’s of Urban and Regional Planning.
