Greek Life at the University of Louisiana Monroe Spotlights Kenneth Tramble
We’re thrilled that our very own board member and past grantee, Kenneth Tramble, was spotlighted by the University of Louisiana Monroe’s National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)!
Here’s the post from Greek Life at the University of Louisiana Monroe’s Facebook page:
Our tenth spotlight of the month is Kenneth Tramble, who is the founder of Deputies Making a Change mentor program. The program specializes in mentoring young men ages 9-13 with an 84% success rate. Kenneth is also on the board of directors for the Office of Juvenile Justice, both state and federal. Just this year, Kenneth was asked to serve on the Foundation for the Mid South Board of Directors, a nonprofit organization that invests in people and strategies that build philanthropy and promote racial, social and economic equity in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. He also works at the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office. His goal is to change at-risk youths’ lives. Kenneth’s motto is “Don’t let where you come dictate where you go in life.”
Kenneth Tramble is Deputy Sheriff in the Ouachita Parish (LA) Sheriff’s Department, where, among other activities, he coordinates an after-school mentoring program for at-risk youth, called Deputies for Change. The program serves elementary- and middle-school children throughout Ouachita Parish. His other professional experience includes work as a youth investigator for the Louisiana State Department of Corrections, an agent for a metropolitan narcotics unit, and an internal affairs investigator with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections. Mr. Tramble has 12 years of military experience, including service as a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army. Mr. Tramble is a two-time recipient of the National Defense Service Medal. He received his law enforcement training at the North Delta Police Academy and earned an associate degree in criminal justice from the American College of Technology.
