Daniel Roberts, Provost of Northshore Technical Community College, has been named the Alumni Association’s 2019 Alumnus of the Year.
Roberts graduated from Southeastern in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in communication and in 2005 with a master of business administration degree. 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 named to the list of Ones to Watch in Education in 2016 by New Orleans CityBusiness, and in 2005 he was awarded Southeastern Outstanding Man of the Year for his demonstrated excellence in driving student success in his role as a transfer recruiter / admissions counselor.
During Homecoming Week’s Alumni Awards Evening on October 11, Roberts, along with other Southeastern faculty, staff, and alumni, will receive special recognition.
