My Alma Mater Paul Quinn College in Texas has a partnership with PepsiCo aimed at providing affordable, healthy food options to economically depressed areas in Dallas.
During the 20-plus years Harriett Ball taught in Texas public schools, her methods weren’t always applauded. She sometimes butted heads with a system that didn’t appreciate deviation from the norm. However, Ball was committed to her rambunctious teaching style, which is now nationally celebrated. She trained the founders of KIPP Academy (Knowledge Is Power Program) right here in Houston, Texas.
