Lynn Davenport went to Lake Highlands High School, where she was able to succeed with a learning disability. Now she fights for other kids to have the educational resources that she had. Davenport speaks at the state Capitol to defend public education. Her educational advocacy started after her daughter fell victim to the standardized testing culture. Now she writes articles, speaks at independent school districts around Dallas and partakes in podcasts and web series. Davenport has also spent the past 10 years coaching unemployed people through her church’s ministry, Watermark’s Career in Motion.
