A Posse Comes to Headquarters

08/10/2018

Since 2011, Entergy has helped secure more than $26 million in full-tuition, four-year scholarships for Posse New Orleans students. 

​In June, a posse came to Entergy headquarters. They weren’t summoned by the sheriff like in the Wild West. They weren’t part of an entourage, either.

This posse was part of Posse New Orleans, the local chapter of a national program that provides college preparation, access and support for low-income minority students. A posse is made up of a small, diverse group of talented students who are considered the leaders of tomorrow.

Students from Posse New Orleans were invited to Entergy to get a sense of the work environment and opportunities we offer. During their visit, they got an overview of how Entergy does business from Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Drew Marsh. This overview was enhanced by presentations from a variety of departments, office tours and a panel discussion with current employees.

Entergy has worked with Posse New Orleans for a number of years. Since 2011, the company has helped secure more than $26 million in full-tuition, four-year scholarships for students to Tulane University, Notre Dame University, Bard College and Grinnell University.
