HAMMOND – Daniel Roberts, acting chancellor of Northshore Technical Community
College, has been named Southeastern Louisiana University’s 2019 Young Alumnus of
the Year. He will be officially recognized at the Southeastern Alumni Association
Awards Evening to be held this fall during Homecoming Week.
Roberts graduated from Southeastern in 2003 and 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in communication and a master of business administration degree respectively. He contributed to the creation of Connect to Success, a partnership between Southeastern and NTCC that provides a seamless and supportive bridge program on Southeastern’s campus for NTCC students. It is the largest two-year to four-year partnership in the state, and is considered a national model for similar programs.
He is also a founding board member of Southeastern’s Lions Connected, a transition and post-secondary program that provides young adults with intellectual disabilities an inclusive college experience while preparing them to become contributing members of society.
“We are pleased to honor Daniel Roberts as our Young Alumnus of the Year,” said Alumni Association President Beth Carney Ebberman. “Dr. Roberts’ service and support to Southeastern is evident in his work related to the Connect to Success and Lions Connected programs and his dedication to student success in achieving educational and career goals through transfer pathways to Southeastern.”
Roberts was recognized in 2016 by New Orleans CityBusiness as “Ones to Watch in Education,” and was named the 2005 Southeastern “Outstanding Man of the Year” for his demonstrated excellence in driving student success in his role as a transfer recruiter/admissions counselor.
Alumni Awards Evening will also include recognition of several Southeastern faculty and staff and alumni, including Alumna of the Year for 2019 President and Chief Executive Officer of North Oaks Health System Michele Sutton.
