Margaret Dunbar-Demaree is the founder of 1+1=U, Inc, a 501 C 3 organization. She received her B.S. from Eastern Kentucky University and her M.A. from the University of Louisville, both in Special Education. In addition, she holds an administration certification from Western Kentucky University. Margaret currently teaches at the historically black Louisville Central High School where she founded 1+1=U, Inc. in 2007. Margaret’s non-profit has been featured in several publications including the Courier Journal, Business First and Today’s Women Magazine. Margaret has also appeared on “Connections with Renee Shaw Show” and interviewed on radio talk shows “Big Talk on Small Business,” B96 & 101.3 FM and 1350 AM for the work 1+1=U, Inc. is doing to help students in the community.

Her passion is helping students who misbehave in class, don't want to follow directions and otherwise wouldn't make. Margaret mentors teens with issues and helps them improve academically so they can attend the universities and colleges of their choice or pursue the career they thought couldn’t be achieved. Her vision for 1+1=U is to help youth develop goals and guide them to the next step, whether it be college, vocational school or military academy. Margaret knows it takes an education to change a reputation, so 1+1=U, Inc. is just Giving Youth a Chance!”
