Seven students and two faculty members spent one week in the August heat of Louisiana, participating in a summer mission trip. Roger Bacon students worked
alongside members of the St. Bernard Project in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans doing construction and home renovation.
The St. Bernard Project (SBP), was started in St. Bernard Parish, LA in 2006 to help the recovery effort after Hurricane Katrina. When the levees broke
during the hurricane, the entire Lower Ninth Ward was rendered inhabitable. SBP’s founding mission was to rebuild the devastated area.

While the students were primarily there to serve the community, they also had the opportunity to enjoy the culturally rich city of New Orleans, learn about
AmeriCorps through SBP, visit the Katrina museum, and bond with their fellow classmates.
