Food scholarships could help more students finish college (15:47) Daphne Hernandez, Ph.D., earned her PhPh.D.in Applied Developmental & Educational Psychology at Boston College. She is currently an assistant professor in the department of health and human performance at the University of Houston. Her research is centered around family-related factors, such as poverty and family structure, and their influence on food insecurity/food assistance program participation (i.e. indicators of poverty) and obesity. With the cost of a college education rising more and more students are struggling to make ends meet. As a result, some students are going hungry and that makes it incredibly difficult for them to focus and succeed in school.  Dr. Daphne Hernandez believes campus hunger is a significant factor behind inequality in college completion rates, and that “food scholarships” may be a solution.  How to Lead when you Lack Authority (1:04:13) Clay Scroggins is the lead pastor of North Point Community Church, providing visionary and directional leadership for all the local church staff and congregation.
