Guests: Judy Perkins, former president and co-chair of the college scholarship program for the Houston Junior Forum.

Kimberly Trevino just graduated from A&M University and is headed to medical school.

Stephen Quezada is a lawyer who graduated from the University of Houston.

The Houston Junior Forum gives out scholarships to help people break the cycle of poverty. Kimberly and Stephen are two examples of what the community's help can do, coupled with good parenting. They remind us that no matter what kind of help one can get, the crucial part of growing up, getting the right education and becoming a productive member of society is good parenting.
