21 March 2014
The New Orleans Military & Maritime Academy held its official Dedication Ceremony on March 20, 2014. Honored guests and speakers included members of the Marine Forces Reserve, NOMMA, New Orleans Federal Alliance, Algiers Development District, City of New Orleans, State of Louisiana and the project team that worked on the school including HRI/ECC, LLC and Woodward Design+Build. Eddie Boatner, President of HRI/ECC, LLC, noted that “This is what can be done with successful public private partnerships”.
The groundbreaking charter school moved into their new facility over the Christmas break after sharing space temporarily with the Marine Forces Reserve.
“We did this to provide a unique opportunity for a quality education and a path to the future. These young men and women are the future leaders of this city, this state and this nation. I want to thank them for their commitment, to take a chance on a new concept of a school that is different from any other in the city”. Col. Bill Davis, Ret.
