Brian Williams at NBC's Education Nation
Williams admits to teachers: he couldn't have done it without them!
He didn’t complete college, yet he is at the top of his career. Today, he stood up in front of a bunch of teacher’s and admited how much he needed them along the way.
“I dropped out of college,” said NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. “There were teachers that picked me up along the way. I guess in a strange way, I am an education don’t.”
Teachers from all over the country came to Rockefeller Center Sunday to speak at a Teacher Town Hall meeting with Williams as moderator. The town hall kicked off a three-day conference on education called Education Nation. I sat down with Williams after the two-hour televised live event.
