Northshore Court Administrator Wins Award for Extra Effort with Specialty Courts

Covington, Louisiana (September 19, 2014)

At its annual conference in Clearwater, Florida, the Southern Criminal Justice Association awarded its “2014 Professional of the Year” honor to Adrienne Stroble, Court Administrator for the 22nd Judicial District Court of St. Tammany and Washington Parishes.  SCJA, an association serving criminal justice educators, researchers and practitioners of 11 states in the Southeast and US island territories, selected Stroble, an attorney and longtime public administrator, for her efforts “outside the arena of what she has to do, but for what she chooses to do for the love of her career, her discipline, and her community.”  According to Dr. David Khey, of Loyola University of New Orleans Criminal Justice Department and member of SCJA, Stroble’s “lagniappe” work has been “instrumental in articulating the nuances of [specialty court] programs to key stakeholders requiring buy-in for success.” Specialty courts or problem-solving courts in the 22nd Judicial District Court include three Adult Drug Courts, a Sobriety Court, Family Preservation Court, a Re-Entry Court and a Behavioral Health Court all of which offer substance abuse or mental health treatment as part of judge-supervised programs.  The courts offer cost-effective alternatives to incarceration and promote restoration of families and sustained employment to over 400 non-violent criminal offenders annually.  Dr. Khey explains about Stroble, “her dedication, often behind the scenes, is the glue that keeps operations tightly-knit and running well.”  Stroble’s work contributed to the 2013 award of $1.2 million in funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance and SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) for the 22nd JDC’s Re-entry Court and most recently this month, an additional $1.2 million from the same agencies for the district’s Behavioral Health Court. 

Within the last year, Ms. Stroble has been awarded another “Professional of the Year” honor, one from the local SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) for designing a nationally-acclaimed mentoring program that connects specialty court participants with local human resource professionals.  Stroble is currently president of the Louisiana Court Administrators Association and is in her seventh semester as an adjunct professor at Southeastern Louisiana University where she teaches senior-level employment law in the College of Business Administration.
