BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Lee Ann Grace is the second remarkable woman News 4 is featuring this year.

She calls herself a “born teacher,” a remarkable woman who walked into Buffalo State College a half century ago, and saw her future take shape.

“I felt like I could really make a difference,” Grace said. “The very first semester I taught there.”

And she has been making a difference ever since — in many corners of Western New York, and beyond.

News 4’s Jacquie Walker spoke with Grace and learned more on her journey, using language skills and much more, to make a difference. See the full segment in the video above.
