1Apple Grocery / Dr. Charles Lockwood
A pair of USF students has opened 1Apple Grocery, a new store in Plant City that targets members of the Florida WIC program, which provides financial aid to low-income women, infants and children so that they can buy nutritious food. We’ll take you there on University Beat on WUSF TV. Also: Dr. Charles Lockwood took the reins at USF Health and the Morsani College of Medicine this past May, and WUSF’s Mark Schreiner recently sat down with him for a revealing discussion. On this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we’ll hear from Lockwood about the changes in the healthcare industry, how he wants to help students handle the growing cost of med school, and the future direction of USF Health.
Two Siblings, Two Schools, Two Stories
Lou and Lolita Brown are brother and sister, born about eight years apart - just a big enough separation to give them very different life experiences.
Lolita was one of the last students to go through the Pinellas County School system prior to integration, while her younger brother Lou was one of the first to go through desegregation. Lolita graduated from Gibbs High in the early 60s, which, at the time was an all-black high school. In the 70s however, Lou was bused to Dixie Hollins.
On this edition of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, we hear how those differences played out, and how, in many ways, integration made for a much more difficult high school experience.
