The Honoré Center
About the Honoré Center
General Honoré knows the power of a great education to create opportunity for students of all walks of life.
That’s why he founded the Honoré Center for Undergraduate Student Achievement (CUSA) at his alma mater, the Southern University and A&M College System. The program provides direct resources to African American men enrolled in college and increases the number of certified male teachers in urban classrooms.
Seniors from New Orleans-area high schools with leadership potential and interest in community growth are recruited to the program and given structured resources and support to complete their college education at the Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO). Upon completion of the program, participants are required to serve at least two years as a local classroom teacher, thus reinvesting resources and support into their communities.
The program creates a positive feedback loop for community investment and support, and champions education at all levels as a critical element of success.
