Amy Carrier in the Press
In late 2010, Amy was contacted by a producer at CNN. They wanted to feature her story of developing a successful entrepreneurship program inside a public school. That school was Fenway High School in Boston. She appeared live the next day on CNN Newsroom's Chalk Talk program to talk about the importance of the curriculum and the value of partnering with businesses to make the learning real. Host Ali Velshi interviewed Amy and called her work "close to my heart." Click on the link above to view the interview or click on any of the links below to view more.
