The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) honors the life and legacy of William Raspberry. WKKF board and staff were proud to partner with Baby Steps, a program William Raspberry founded in his home town of Okolona, Mississippi, to support parents’ desire to give their children the best possible start in life, through early childhood education, language development and early health assessments and interventions. William’s commitment to and action on behalf of his hometown will have lasting positive impacts for generations of Mississippi families, and is a model for communities all across America. He will be long-remembered with fondness and gratitude.
