In the summer of 2012, Alderman Antonio French formed the North Campus Partnership, a non-profit dedicated to one specific goal: improving the lives of the children living in his ward. How do you tackle such a large project and try to break a multi-generational cycle of poverty? For French, it all starts with education.
Antonio was born and raised in this community. He and his wife, Jasenka, have dedicated their lives to improving this forgotten and neglected section of St. Louis. Antonio holds an MBA from Washington University while Jasenka has a PhD in electrical engineering from the same university.
