What happens when you take 30 more or less average kids in Cleveland, give them something to shoot for, every reason to succeed and support in doing it? Success. This spring, the Barbara Byrd-Bennett Scholars will graduate and head off to college, some of them with a free ride at Baldwin Wallace. Monday morning on The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk with a few of the scholars, their advisor, and Barbara Byrd-Bennett herself about the program and the lessons learned.




LaDonna Norris, Baldwin-Wallace College, Barbara Byrd-Bennett Scholar program director; Brandon Floyd, BBB scholar, MLK High School; Quameen Vernon, BBB scholar, John Marshall H.S.; Margaret Bernstein, Plain Dealer reporter; Barbara Byrd-Bennett, Cleveland State University
