NBA-great, Allan Houston, was born and raised right here in the bluegrass. A proud product of Kentucky’s public education system himself, Houston is also a two-time NBA All Star, an Olympic athlete and was named several times as one of The Sporting News’ “Good Guys in Sports.” Though he is a retired athlete, he hasn’t left the game entirely. Houston currently serves as Assistant General Manager of the New York Knicks and General Manager of the Westchester Knicks. Read more, below.
Allan lives his life with a determination to use his success as a professional athlete to help others, a philosophy that led to the launch of his own foundation, The Legacy Foundation. The Foundation’s exciting work has helped serve more than 1500 participants from across the country with programs that strongly focus on fatherhood and entrepreneurship. Houston believes firmly in the power of education, life skills and economic empowerment through entrepreneurship.
We know you’ll enjoy hearing this Kentucky native talk about the role public education has played in his own journey to success and how he believes business and education leaders must come together to deliver learning experiences that empower students to achieve their life goals.
