We are thrilled to announce that FLTI NOLA 2015 graduate Kanitra Charles and Julia Bland of the Louisiana Children’s Museum met First Lady Michelle Obama at a ceremony honoring exceptional libraries and museums. The LCM received a 2015 National Medal for Museum and Library Sciences — one of only ten museums and libraries in the nation to do so.
The two ladies were in the White House’s East Room, where Ms. Obama told Kanitra to send a message back home to her four kids — “Listen to your mom.”
We’re so proud of the Children’s Museum for all that they do for the youth of New Orleans, and of Kanitra for being a partner in their mission. Please join us in giving them a round of applause!
