The Richard's Family couldn't be more proud of Sharisse Scineaux Patterson. Sharisse, is a native New Orleanian, producer at Atlanta's Channel 26 and the daughter of Silvia S. Richard and Clifford Scineaux and step-daughter of Alvin Richard, Jr. She is known around RDI as "Sunshine Sharisse". Proudly featured this morning in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the featured cover page of myAJC, AJC.com, Sharisse greets Mayor Landrieu and supports him in his efforts to thank Atlanta for their help during the Katrina crisis. In true "Sunshine Sharisse" fashion, she brought the light and joy to a press conference that would remind all of great loss. As Mayor Landrieu stood aside Atlanta's Mayor Kasim Reed stating “We want everybody who was in the city of New Orleans to feel welcome to come home,” we can only imagine that the laughter may have been that both Mayors were bargaining over her!
