Nola Health Clinic
On the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans' Warren Easton High School officially opened its student health clinic. Actress Sandra Bullock, who donated funds to rebuild the school and launch the clinic, joined school nurse Cassondra Ferrand and Principal Alexina Medley to cut the ribbon on the $700,000 clinic, People.com reported. "I have seen nothing but unimaginable kindness, perseverance and hope right in this room here," the "Blind Side" star said at the event. "It gives me great pleasure to be in the company of these people who have actually made the difference. They did the hard work, they are here sitting before you." Bullock, a part-time resident of the Big Easy and doting mother to an orphaned NOLA baby boy, addressed Warren Easton High School students, saying, "I would like to thank the students who step up to the plate and do the hardest work. I didn't do it in high school, and it makes me so incredibly proud." At the opening ceremony, Bullock said although Hurricane Katrina was devastating, the anniversary should be a celebration.
