Publisher's Description

In Escape from Paradise, Dr. Hathorn details her life's journey from Paradise cotton plantation to receiving her doctorate degree on the stage of Zellerbach Hall on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley. You will laugh and cry with her as she travels the circuitous route life has led her from goal to goal. Experience gained from years of working in both inner city and well-equipped private schools gives Dr. Hathorn the expertise needed to keep students encouraged to experience a measure of success daily. Her writings will inspire the reader to try the thing that has never been done before and stick with a task to the end. Never quit Never give in Never give up Dr. Pauline Pearson Hathorn is an educator extraordinaire. Born during the Great Depression on Paradise cotton plantation in Dover, Mississippi, she along with many of her contemporaries is a living example of overcoming and successfully traversing life's uncrossable rivers. Dr. Hathorn is living proof that mountains can be removed with sheer tenacity through the grace of God. Education for her began in a non-descript, unpainted, one-room shack on the side of a dusty road bordering a cotton field. From this modest beginning she completed her elementary education in the parochial school in Yazoo City and high school at the Natchez College Baptist Seminary at Natchez, Mississippi. She earned the Bachelor of Science and Master's degree at Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi. Later, defying age she earned the Doctor of Education degree from the University of California, at Berkeley at the age of 71. Dr. Hathorn has taught in the public and private schools of Mississippi and San Jose, California. Presently, she is employed by Hinds Community College in the Adult Education Program at the Voice of Calvary Empowerment Center in Jackson, Mississippi.
