“Te’Ara Arman has been a significant instrument in the transition from high school to college

for my daughter and two of my scholarship recipients. Throughout the whole process she

made sure all parties were on the same page ultimately ending with three of our future being

enrolled at Dillard University of New Orleans. Not only did Mrs. Arman keep in touch and

mentor all three students through their freshman year, she also went above and beyond to

make sure they were enrolled for their sophomore year. Mrs. Arman is an essential piece to

the puzzle that our family calls life. We are honored and blessed to know her.”-Eric Brisker
