HRA WELCOMES NEW BOARD MEMBERS

The Highland Restoration Association is pleased to announce the 2018 board members for the organization. Welcome to our newest board members.

James Carstensen moved into the Highland neighborhood in 1988 with his family and grew up on Prospect Street. He is a master craftsman with a passion for restoring older homes. “I love the culture and diversity of my Highland neighbors and the charm and character of the homes. I look forward to working with the other members of the HRA board to help any way I can.”

 

 

 

Jada Durden is a journalist and blogger and busy woman about town whose brand is lovingthislifejada. Jada said she found her home in Highland soon after she moved here and has been thriving and loving it ever since.

 

 

Madison Poche brought her enthusiasm and energy to Shreveport when she moved from New Orleans. She loves Highland’s proximity to downtown, the bike lanes, the historic architecture, and the general vibe in Highland. Madison works for SRAC, and recently purchased a home in Highland.

 

 

Holly Roca is a Los Angeles transplant and a realtor with Keller Williams Realty who is active in the Highland market. Her interests include historic guidelines and increasing property values in our historic neighborhood.  Her strengths that she brings to the board include building community relations and promoting partnerships.

 

 

Highland Restoration Association welcomes all the new board members, and we look forward to working with them to preserve and enhance our historic neighborhood under the direction of our new board president, Michele Marcotte. Michele agreed to serve as president for 2018 after doing a great job as Chair of the 2017 Highland Holiday Tour of Homes.

Returning board members include Janelle Willis, Vice President; Iris Harper, Secretary; and Barbara Ramsey, Treasurer; and Marsha Millican Gill; Kevin May; Melinda Purcell; Andy Shehee; and Sydni Smith.

We thank board members rotating off the board this year for their service: Darel LaBeau; Tyler Spears; and Tom Arceneaux who will continue to serve HRA as an adviser on zoning issues. Teresa Edgerton-Scott is also a former board president who serves as a general adviser to the board.
