Smokey Sees Hurricane Restoration Projects

Blake Reagan of Seymour, Tenn., earned his bachelor’s degree from UT Knoxville in 2004 and his law degree in 2006.

He is a contract analyst in UT’s treasurer’s office.

Reagan and his mother, Debra Reagan, who also works at UT Knoxville, at the Social Work Office of Research & Public Services (SWORPS), sent these photos from a trip to Louisiana in the spring of 2009.

“Recently, my dad moved to New Orleans for a job and he will be there for at least one year,” Blake Reagan wrote. “He’s working on some construction projects near New Orleans to help prevent major damage from future hurricanes.”

The first photo is of Debra Reagan near the Hurricane Risk Reduction Project construction site at the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal. This project is part of the closure of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet, a shipping channel from the Gulf of Mexico that carried a surge of water that broke a levee and flooded St. Bernard Parish and the surrounding area during Hurricane Katrina.

The second photo is of Debra Reagan standing near Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, La.
