Tulsa's biggest Head Start program, which is run by CAP Tulsa, a nonprofit group that serves 3- to 4-year-olds. It looked at how the students in the program were faring years later.

Tulsa University's men's basketball team took on what's likely to be its smallest competitors Wednesday morning. CAP Tulsa , an early learning school for low-income students ages 0-4, hosted the team. They ran drills, shot free-throws and brought a few smiles to little faces along the way.
