Congratulations to member James Quail who was awarded the title of Distinguished Educator by Phi Delta Kappa in February. Mr. Quail‘s distinction is well deserved for his daily dedication as a New York educator. We are proud to announce his achievement on a very special project. A publication entitled “What We Need to Know About Nutrition and Staying Healthy” was collaboratively produced by the New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College and Mentoring USA. Working with Dr. Charles Platkin, Jim Quail was a contributor listed for his work in this publication.
Keeping high caliber accomplishments in the family, James Quail and his wife Maria Quail published a special guide as an adjunct to “What We Need to Know About Nutrition and Staying Healthy.” Ms. B.J. Carter, National Director of “Healthy Children, Healthy Futures” and members of the New York State Mentoring Advisory Council assisted with this publication. This practical and informative resource tool will be utilized by mentors as they assist and work with their mentees in and across New York State.
