Lesson:  Skill + Values = Safety

One of the lessons of the 1937 Texas School Explosion is that those responsible for schools need to be highly qualified for the job of managing complex systems of both buildings and people. 

Who Is Your 2015 Hero? Every year to mark the anniversary of the March 18, 1937 Texas School Explosion, I salute heroes whose extraordinary sense of responsibility and leadership is dedicated to protecting students and staff from chemical hazards and unhealthy school conditions.

Each Healthy Kids Hero 2004-2014 is extraordinary for a combination of personal qualities and qualifications beyond credentials, a commitment to a safe quality environment, and an exceptional sense of responsibility for excellence.
