In 2017, Sideline Pass started a scholarship fund to send an academically excellent, financially challenged young lady from New Orleans to a private high school of her choosing, in the hopes that an outstanding private, primary education would open the doors for scholarships and grants to college. The scholarship recipient must also show a dedication to New Orleans and the desire to give back to the city in her adult, professional life. We’re proud to announce that Gloria is the first Sideline Pass Scholar! She is attending Dominican High School in the hopes of preparing for a career as an OBGYN helping under-served women throughout Greater New Orleans. Our first fundraiser – a Garden Party with artist Ashley Longshore – was a huge success! Thank you to the incredibly talented – and benevolent – Ashley Longshore for being our guest of honor and donating one of her original works for our auction. Ashley, you are the definition of girl power!!!! We’re so honored to name you as the first Sideline Pass Woman of the Year! A Huge shout out to Dr. Louis and Janie Glade for allowing us to use their beautiful home – thank you!
There were many amazing women behind this endeavor who are still working today to educate and give deserving young ladies a better chance to succeed. The Sideline Pass Scholarship Committee is truly a group of women who are as ambitious and intelligent as they charitable and loving. We have a great team! The Sideline Pass Scholarship Committee: Dr. Kate Sullivan, Tina Marie Wong, Missie Lindsey, Tamica Lee, Reagan Charleston, Fammy Famularo Rodrigue, Shay Melton Randolph, Stephanie Burks, Jessica Macaluso O’Connor, Robin Barnes, Janie Glade, Christina Chapuis, Allison Shapiro and Jen Hale.
