ADL Celebrates 15th Anniversary of the No Place for Hate® Initiative at Luncheon Featuring Dr. Jennifer Arnold, M.D. of TLC’s The Little Couple
2016 is a special year for the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL’s) No Place for Hate® Initiative. This year marks the 15th year of the No Place for Hate® Initiative, the region’s signature education initiative, which empowers schools to promote respect for individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry.
The luncheon will celebrate the anniversary with cake and compliments for the hundreds of schools that have achieved a No Place for Hate® designation, especially Hunters Creek Elementary School in Spring Branch ISD, Johnston Middle School in Houston ISD, and the Kinkaid Middle School, the three schools that have achieved the designation each year since the program began.
It also will honor three educators with the Walter Kase Teacher Excellence Award, for their outstanding efforts to create a school atmosphere that promotes respect for and understanding of diversity. Honorees included Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. James W. Cain, Kenneth E. Little Elementary School Counselor Yvonne DeLeon, and The Kinkaid Lower School Counselor Dr. Nancy Simpson.
The Teacher Excellence Award is named in memory of Walter Kase, a Polish-born Holocaust survivor who dedicated a quarter century of his life to telling students his personal story of surviving five camps and what that taught him about the dangers of prejudice and the importance of love and respect.
ADL’s No Place for Hate® Luncheon also will feature keynote speaker Dr. Jennifer Arnold, M.D. of Texas Children’s Hospital and TLC’s The Little Couple.
The Luncheon takes place at noon, May 4 at the Hilton Houston Post Oak, 2001 Post Oak, Houston, TX 77056. It is generously underwritten by Sysco. Event chairs are Lyn F. Schmulen and her daughter, Caren S. Sweetland. Tickets are $200 and tables start at $2,500.

Lowbrow Chef Plans to Launch Monthly Montrose Cookoff This Summer
Chef Will Gilchriest’s Instagram feed is filled with photos of his mouthwatering creations: chicken-fried sirloin sliders with fried green tomatoes, bacon-wrapped figs drizzled with honey, grilled watermelon with feta cheese. Until now, these delicacies could only be sampled at Gilchriest’s restaurants—Brooklyn Athletic Club, where he worked for three years; Lowbrow Bar and Grill, the Montrose hot spot where he was recently appointed executive chef; and Piggy’s, a new restaurant opening this summer on the corner of Dunlavy and West Dallas where Gilchriest is helping design the menu.
Top 5 Takeaways from the Latest Houston Area Survey--For starters, public opinion on HERO doesn’t match the way Houston voted.
One of the most surprising responses of this year’s survey was to a first-time question. Just a few months after Houston defeated its anti-discrimination ordinance by a vote of 61 percent to 39 percent, surveyed residents were asked how important they thought it was for the city “to pass a local equal rights ordinance that would protect people from discrimination.”
