EMPOWERMENT Sunday - 3:20PM: The Convention Center's Hall B
DeLano Ford grew up within a supportive, loving community in NC but realized that successful completion of high school did not prepare him for Morehouse once he arrived. Eventually graduating with honors, DeLano committed to finding solutions to educational inequity. Prior to joining TFA, he was Deputy Superintendent of Transformation with the Louisiana Recovery School District and the COO of KIPP New Orleans. DeLano graduated from Morehouse and earned an MBA from Cornell University.
