Tracy Hill used her years of educational experience to build Parent University, a program that helps caretakers learn how to best support their children. 

Pamela Grundy chose to send her child to a low-performing school in her neighborhood, and rallied with parents, teachers, and faculty to make it a thriving, diverse place to learn. 

Ben York created Ready4K to help busy parents prepare their children for kindergarten in the middle of everyday activities through text-messaging tips.  

Author, television host, and nonprofit executive, Alison Goldstein Lebovitz, will serve as emcee for the evening.
