Sandra Bullock helps open New Orleans high school clinic

by Danielle Tabary on August 31, 2010

On the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Oscar-winning actress and new New Orleans resident Sandra Bullock returned to Warren Easton Charter High School for a ceremony kicking off the construction of a new on-campus health clinic. As the school’s frequent patron, Bullock joined educators, school supporters and politicians including U.S. Senators Mary Landrieu and David Vitter, and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu for the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“We’re here to celebrate an anniversary and though that might be hard for some, I choose to emphasize the word ‘celebrate.’ Sometimes tragedies bring out the very best in people and it’s one of the reasons why we stand in this school of excellence today,” Bullock said to the group of people gathered in the school’s auditorium that she previously contributed to rebuilding.

Along with Bullock’s donations, the $700,000 medical and dental clinic received grants from the Kellogg Foundation and the San Francisco 49ers Foundation. The clinic is set to open in the fall and will provide services ranging from flu shots to emergency care.

Cassondra Ferrand, the school’s nurse who helped fight for the clinic project, said Tulane Medical Center will provide physicians, nurse practitioners and social workers for the clinic that will serve an area that’s been looked over since Katrina.
