Stanley G. Buford was born in Chicago, Illinois.  Mr. Buford studied at Illinois State University and holds master’s degrees from National-Louis University in Management/Human Resource Development and DePaul University in Curriculum Development. 

He has appeared as a guest on the nationally televised show, “Heartbeat of America,” in a frank discussion concerning challenges to climbing corporate and educational ladders. He owns and operates a state certified management consulting business, Terkat Consultants Inc.  

Stanley has served as the Program Director in the School Partnerships Program, a school improvement project at DePaul University.  He has also served as an adjunct faculty member at Concordia University.  He is a recipient of the National Leadership Award in Business and has also been awarded the prestigious Keeping America Strong Award. Mr. Buford started a mentoring program (From Boys To Men Network Foundation) in 1991, which seeks to improve the quality of life for school-age boys in Chicago’s inner city.  He also assists in the organization and administration of the church’s Big Brothers Mentoring Program as the Parent Liaison.

Is not a cure, it is his ongoing contribution to improving education for the 21st century.
