10 Years After Hurricane Katrina

10 years ago I was living back home in the Midwest. I had a three year old and one year old and worked in real estate with my family. I thought life would always go on like that and little did I know how much I’ve gone through in 10 years!

10 years ago was also when the horrible hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. I honestly don’t remember much about that time, except watching the devasting news on tv. So many people lost. So many people’s life destroyed. So much impact that was never expected.

10 years ago Johnson Controls stood with Tulane University to rebuild and resume classes within five months after Hurricane Katrina’s devastation. Ten years later, the university and New Orleans residents are building a better future one project at a time. Johnson Controls is proud to help the Tulane City Center, a non-profit organization founded by the Tulane School of Architecture, rejuvenate the community.

A $1 million commitment helped Tulane University and New Orleans move forward. Amazing. I would love to see all the changes that have been made and included one of the photos here. Just think of all the time and dedication so many people have given.

I wish all companies stood out and gave their heart. 10 years is a fabulous commitment!
