Episode 3. Why Now, Why Us. Jeanne and Jeff Geoffray were the youngest children of the Adult Education Center’s Director, Alice Geoffray. As frequent visitors to the Center between 1965 and 1972, they witnessed the extraordinary transformation in their mother brought on by her work with the 431 alumnae of the groundbreaking vocational school, setting the stage for her later career as the “Mother of Career Education” in Louisiana. Because Alice died feeling her life’s work had been in vain, Jeanne and Jeff seek to heal the grief of their mother’s passing by teaming up with the Center’s alumnae, to start a non-profit scholarship fund called the 431 Exchange.
