Asia B. McHaney
A graduate of Xavier University in New Orleans, with a degree in Political Science and Theology, Asia McHaney treasures the time she spent in Louisiana. “It taught me to persevere through the hardest of tragedies and the greatest accomplishments, especially during time of Hurricane Katrina,” she said. “Having to evacuate and then come back and rebuild was one of the most influential experiences of my life.” For the past 12 years, she has volunteered through various youth ministries, and she continues to work with youth and young adults now that she has settled in the Flint area. Before she joined the Foundation in 2014 as a library administrative assistant, she worked in local government and as an administrative coordinator for Loyola University in New Orleans.
