Benjamin Franklin High School

MISSION STATEMENT The mission of Benjamin Franklin High School is to prepare students of high academic achievement to be successful in life. HISTORY OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL Benjamin Franklin High School is named after the great statesman because of what he was and what he did. Often called the first great American, Franklin’s belief in the power of curiosity to fuel creativity and the power of ingenuity to mother invention has been proven by the multitudes of his inventions and the stamp of his political philosophy. The students who attend Benjamin Franklin High School are taught to imitate that same curiosity and creativity and to actualize their own power to think, to invent, and to understand. Benjamin Franklin High School is a great American institution. Benjamin Franklin High School opened in 1957 with approximately one hundred students in the tenth grade. In subsequent years the eleventh and twelfth grades were added, and in 1960 the first class graduated. The school was originally located at 719 South Carrollton Avenue in the Carrollton Courthouse, a historic New Orleans landmark. The building still stands today and is one of the surviving architectural masterpieces of architect Henry Howard. Later. In March 1990, Franklin moved to its present location on the campus of the University of New Orleans. Its stated mission remains the same—to promote excellence among New Orleans high school students.

Broad Community Connections

Broadmoor Improvement Association

The Broadmoor Improvement Association (BIA) is one of the oldest neighborhood associations in New Orleans. Established in 1930 as the Broadmoor Civic Improvement Association to address the needs of the developing Broadmoor neighborhood, it was incorporated in 1970 as the Broadmoor Improvement Association, Inc. to stop "blockbusting" in Broadmoor, a well-established, multi-racial/multi-ethnic community already living in harmony. Before Hurricane Katrina, the Broadmoor Improvement Association had worked continuously to improve the neighborhood. We reduced crime; we had secured the Rosa Keller Library; we had joined with Rebuild New Orleans to repair homes of our low-income elderly or handicapped; we had re-treed our neutral grounds and the MLK park area – all in constant effort to improve Broadmoor and maintain a high quality of life for it's residents. Since Katrina, the Broadmoor Improvement Association has become known as a "grassroots powerhouse". Broadmoor has built partnerships and was recognized at the 2006 Clinton Global Initiative. The BIA is here to address the needs of the residents by engaging the community and building consensus amoung residents as to their vision for a revitalized neighborhood that is "Better than Before". Broadmoor has become a model for for citizen-led recovery efforts. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the time for action is now. It is imperative that we unite as one to rebuild a stronger Broadmoor; not one of us can do it alone. Being faced with the challenges of crafting a vision for the future of our community, BIA needs your presence and voices every step of the way. So lets pull together, join the Broadmoor Improvement Association and put a better Broadmoor in the center of the map of New Orleans. The BIA exists for every resident of Broadmoor. Our neighborhood has a sense of awareness, unity, and pride.

City of New Orleans

Just like Mardi Gras and jazz music, volunteerism has a rich tradition in the City of New Orleans. The Volunteers in Government of Responsibility (VIGOR) program first began in the 1970s under Mayor Moon Landrieu. A group of community leaders and City employees were among the founding members of VIGOR, and throughout the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, VIGOR was regularly honored and recognized as a successful model of utilizing constituent volunteers in city government. At its peak, over 1,000 volunteers were actively involved in City government. When Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005, the necessary reductions in the City workforce included the VIGOR Coordinator. In 2007, however, a partnership with Tulane University’s Center for Public Service, AmeriCorps, and the Mayor’s Office of Public Advocacy was established in order to bring a VIGOR Coordinator back into the fold. Today, VIGOR continues to expand and find new opportunities for constituents to volunteer with City government.

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum

Mission of the Museum - The mission of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum is to “bring Louisiana 's unique maritime history to life.” While most Americans are familiar with the historical significance of the city of New Orleans, the Mississippi River and the Louisiana Purchase, most local residents and visitors alike know little about the role that Lake Pontchartrain and the other rivers, marshes and bayous of southeastern Louisiana played in our country's development. Yet, for most of recorded history, these watery routes, and not the lower reaches of the mighty Mississippi River were the “front door” providing access from the Gulf of Mexico to the vast, rich interior of North America . First, Native Americans, then the great European colonial powers, fought for control of these waterways. Naval battles were fought during the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. A local culture unlike any other developed to exploit the treasures of our wetlands, and special craft were designed and built to traverse the generally shallow waters of the region. This boat building tradition has continued for over three centuries – from pirogues, luggers, schooners and steamboats, to submarines and ironclads for the Civil War, to 300' long wooden cargo ships for WWI, to the fabled Higgins boats of WWII, to the cutting-edge military ships that are being built at local shipyards today. All of this makes for an incredibly interesting story, one which when the telling is complete, will make our museum one of the premier maritime museums in the country.
