A group that stresses excellence in education is honoring a Chicago mother for her efforts.

The Black Star Project's Chicago Parent of the Year award went to Deshunn Bray.

Her daughter, a third grader, attends the Jackie Robinson School.

For several years, Bray has provided books to students at the school, ballet uniforms, and shoes for its after-school program.
