Join Jeanne and her co-host, Michael Musante, for this week’s inspirational podcast episode featuring former NBA basketball star, and ESPN talk show host Jalen Rose, the Founder and Chairman of the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy charter high school in his hometown of Detroit, MI. Jalen holds nothing back when it comes to his passion for a high-quality education for every child, regardless of their zip code, or the circumstances of their home life or their neighborhoods. The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy serves more than 400 high school students from inner city neighborhoods in Detroit – and continues serving graduates into their college or other post-secondary school experiences. One hundred percent of JRLA’s graduates go on to college and post-secondary educational opportunities. Jalen is full of hope, and optimism, and passion (and a few choice words of advice for policymakers). His enthusiasm is infectious, and you will catch it when you listen in on Jeanne and Michael’s conversation with him.
