White House to honor South LA educator Daphne Bradford

daphneDaphne Bradford, CEO and founder of the grassroots organization, Mother of Many (M.O.M), which helps prepare South L.A. high schools students for both their college and work career, will receive a “Champions for Change” award from the White House on Thursday, November 21, 2013.

Earlier this year, Bradford was recognized at City Hall by the 8th District Councilmember Bernard Parks for advising the Crenshaw Digital Media Team, a group of Crenshaw high school students who created an application titled, Going Bananas for Health, that promotes positive health awareness. The finished product became the first Windows application ever designed and released by LAUSD students.  It is no wonder why she has been selected by the White House as one of the ten techno-immersive educators to be knighted as a Champion of Change.

The event can be viewed live at 11:00 PST, Novemeber 21st, at www.whitehouse.gov/live
