On Wednesday's edition of Lubbock's First News, motivational speaker Larry Bell spoke with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about how parents can help their children succeed in school.

Tonight, Bell will be giving a presentation entitled "Power of A Parent," which talks about various ways parents can help their kids improve in school. The presentation will highlight practical strategies parents can use for students of every age level, from preschool to 12th grade. Bell said that the most important thing he wants parents to take away from tonight's speech is that every parent can help their child succeed in school, regardless of the family's income or circumstances.

"Power of a Parent" will take place tonight at the Lubbock-Cooper High School Performing Arts Center from 5:30 PM to 7 PM. For more information, call Lubbock-Cooper High School at 806-863-7100.
