Hey Amarillo is a weekly, one-on-one interview podcast featuring the people and stories of Amarillo, Texas

Feb 17, 2020

A conversation with Chandra Perkins, founder/director of Storybridge, an Amarillo nonprofit that gives free, age-appropriate books to at-risk children. A longtime educator, Chandra saw that early introduction to books at home was the #1 predictor of academic success for a child. Her kids had dozens of books. Some kids had zero books. With host Jason Boyett, she explains how she set out to rebalance that inequality for Amarillo kids. This episode is sponsored by Panhandle Plains Historical Museum and Wieck Realty.
