The Story of Raechelle Munna '06

By Caroline Gernhauser ’12

Spring Hill College young alumna Raechelle Munna ’06 has always taken advantage of the opportunities that have come her way; so it is no surprise that she is as successful in her professional endeavors as she was in the classroom. Munna said that Spring Hill played an essential role in forming who she is today.

“Spring Hill gave me a more complete foundation than a regular college education. I believe that it’s about what you do with what you’ve been given and utilizing the opportunities that are put in your path. I learned to take advantage of the many resources available to me at Spring Hill,” said Munna.

Munna is a native of Metairie, La., a suburb of New Orleans. After receiving a full tuition scholarship to Spring Hill, she was more than happy to attend. “I loved the fact that it was a small school, and seemed very close-knit,” she stated. While at Spring Hill, Munna majored in accounting and completed the MBA program in four years.

She maintained excellent relationships with her professors and still remains in touch with a few of them today. “I loved the fact that my professors knew who I was, and I felt like they were happy to help,” said Munna. She also kept busy serving as president of Pan-Hellenic council, president of her sorority, Tri Delta, and president of Delta Mu Delta. She was also a member Alpha Sigma Nu, the Jesuit Honor Society.

Munna is an associate in her third year at Jones Walker, LLP in their Corporate & Securities group. Not only does she stay active with her career as an attorney, she is also active in her community by serving on the Junior Board of Boys Hope Girls Hope of Greater New Orleans and by serving as a member of the adjunct faculty at Tulane Law School.

When asked what she loved most about Spring Hill, Munna explained, “I grew socially, intellectually and spiritually. I took advantage of the fact that it was a Catholic school and I attended Mass regularly. I took advantage of the fact that it was a small school and made many great friends and lasting relationships while having a lot of fun.”

“I feel like Spring Hill provided me exactly what its mission states, Cura Personalis, a care for my spiritual, social and intellectual growth,” said Munna.
