Oklahoma's first lady made a stop in Tulsa Tuesday, to get a first hand look at a growing program that matches children with senior citizens.

Jenks Public Schools has partnered with Grace Living Center to create one of the nation's only intergenerational learning programs. Tuesday, Kim Henry spent the day at Grace Living Center, watching children share special moments with their senior mentors. "I'd really like to see some of these expand. I think we can help both populations at one time, our early childhood and seniors and how much they work together."

Kim Henry's main focus since her husband became governor has been early childhood education.
