The school year is now well underway and among the students headed back are those in the Urban-Suburban Transfer Program. For the last 47 years it has brought Rochester city school students to schools in the suburbs. The goal is to reduce racial isolation in schools. Before it turns 50, the program wants to reconnect with its alumnus. We'll hear from the program's community liaison about it.
Plus, a local education pioneer, Dr. Alice Holloway Young is sharing a treasured piece of her family history with Hampton University. A photo of her mother, a member of the 1906 graduating class of Hampton Institute in Hampton, Virginia will be given to the school. Dr. Young is also a founding member of the Rochester Urban-Suburban Program and a founding trustee of Monroe Community College.
