Former student gives a robot to teacher who introduced her to computers
Last week we introduced you to Jill Ford and her former principal Maurice Williams, who still lives in New Brunswick at the age of 94. Ford came from a poor family and went on to earn two Ivy League degrees and a career in technology that made Mrs. Williams proud.
This week WBGO’s Jon Kalish tells the story of how Ford gave Williams a robot for her home named ElliQ and how that’s been going.
