FLTI parent leader visits with Michelle Obama!

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!
