Margaret Hudson Program

I had the privilege of taking a tour of the Margaret Hudson Program School in Broken Arrow this morning. The program committed to educating pregnant and parenting teens and their families to be healthy, self-sufficient, contributing members of the community and to educate the community about the challenge of teen pregnancy and parenting.

I was very impressed with the facility and the opportunity the program provides to pregnant teens and young mothers. They can take their babies to school with them and know that they are well cared for while they study and finish their high school education. Seeing all the beautiful babies was a very special treat.

I will also be speaking to the girls on Career Day in May on opportunities to start their own business. In this world that we live in, opportunities to start businesses are so available. It is possible to turn your favorite hobby, talent, or skill into a viable business that creates an additional income for your household or it can be pursued into a full-time career. I am looking forward to sharing with these girls.
