Angela Hill: New Orleans Greatest Leader Was Not Elected

I have often said the greatest leader in New Orleans was never elected.  Dr. Norman Francis, President of Xavier University of Louisiana, has led an extraordinary life.
At thirty-six, he became President of Xavier and is now the longest running university president in America.  You only have to drive on the I-10 to see a complex of beautiful buildings to understand the vision and leadership of one man.
He has been given every honor from the Times Picayune’s “Loving Cup” to the National Medal of Freedom, but for those who know him…it will never be enough.  Norman Francis is that rare person who has influenced the lives of generations of people and impacted a city in a lasting way…all while being the proud, but humble son of a barber. 
Don’t miss his incredible story.
