I appreciate The Lens' laserlike focus on subjects of critical interest to the New Orleans area. The more eyes watching and reporting on these subjects, the better for the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.
The New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy could not reach a quorum at its monthly meeting Thursday night. Heavy traffic over the Crescent City Connection prevented two board members from reaching the school’s west bank campus.
Members Terry Ebbert, Jack Bergman, Marcellus Grace and W. David Whiddon were present, two shy of a quorum. As other members called stuck in traffic they were told to call off the commute and that the meeting would be rescheduled.
Commandant of the school Col. Bill Davis and principal Cecilia Garcia briefed the board on educational matters.
