It is with great sadness that EPNO announces the death of our executive director, Sharree Walls. While details are still unclear, we learned that she was killed by a drunk driver, Saturday, March 2nd.
In addition, EPNO board member, Harry Vorhoff, and his wife, Sophie, were among those injured. We pray for their swift and full recovery, and the recovery of all impacted by these tragic events.
Words cannot express our sadness at the loss of Sharree. Those of us that worked with her knew her as a tireless advocate for New Orleans and as a philanthropist dedicated to impacting the city’s greatest challenges. She inspired those around her to do more, and set an example that we shall always aspire to meet. We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Sharree and for the contribution she made to our organization and mission.
