Meet LaDonna McDowell
In April 2013, LaDonna enrolled in Liberty’s Kitchen Youth Development Program and never missed a day. She was terrific about letting us know what social services she needed in order to succeed in the program —- Liberty’s Kitchen Program staff went to work! Throughout LaDonna’s time in training, she worked hard and consistently put her best efforts forward. As a single mother of a toddler and one on the way, LaDonna effectively utilized the support system at Liberty’s Kitchen and successful graduated in June. LaDonna is working at Center Plate in the Superdome and also accepted a position as the first supported employee working in our Youth Development Program. LaDonna is working with Dennis Bagneris, Liberty’s Kitchen Program Director, with the administrative functions of the office. She is dedicated to mentoring new trainees and teaching them the valuable life skills. Liberty’s Kitchen staff and students congratulate LaDonna on her terrific achievements.
