Early Life and Education
George was raised in the years immediately following emancipation, in a society where racism and discrimination severely limited educational opportunities for African Americans. During his first year of life, George endured a traumatic ordeal and contracted whooping cough that nearly resulted in his death.
He had to overcome segregation, which required him to attend a school separate from his neighbors in Neosho. Thankfully, Mariah Watkins took in George and provided him with an education.
Early learning experiences, the amount, type, quality and consistency of which a child receives, have an immense effect on their future academic achievement, social-emotional well-being and financial prospects. GKFF supports various early childhood education programs to ensure low-income children have these essential learning environments to maximize their academic success, social-emotional wellbeing and financial opportunities.
