The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center would like to extend gratitude and congratulate Willard Trosclair, the facility attendant in the Building Maintenance Department, on his retirement after an admirable 36-year career. Trosclair joined the New Orleans Convention Center in January 1984 prior to the facility’s first use as the Louisiana Pavilion of the World’s Fair in May 1984.
Trosclair is the longest tenured employee at the Center and is a well-known presence around the facility. He celebrated his last day at the MCCNO on January 13.
“Being employed at a single establishment for more than three-and-a-half decades is an outstanding accomplishment,” says MCCNO President Michael J. Sawaya. “We are so proud of our entire team for fostering a culture of dedication and achievement, and Willard Trosclair epitomizes what it means to be a loyal, tenured part of our extraordinary team,” adding, “Willard has been a staple of our facility for the last 36 years. While we are sad to see him go, we are incredibly grateful for his service and wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement.”
