Ron Hicks

Reentry Specialist

Ron joined Parole Project’s staff as a reentry specialist in June 2023, just a few months after his release from prison. A former client, Ron relishes the new experiences he gains each day as he helps others transition back into society. 

Ron was sentenced to life without parole at the age of 19. While in prison he became a sign language interpreter, braille transcriber, and leader in Angola’s faith community. After 33 years, he received his second chance through a commutation. He is a graduate of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary earning a bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministry and a master’s degree in Pastoral Ministry. He is also currently pursuing a Master of Divinity degree from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
