Retired CEO makes push for pre-K in Idaho

John Pepper is the former CEO of Procter and Gamble and board chairman of the Walt Disney Co.

This week, he’s in Idaho making a pitch for one of his causes: early education. It’s a case he has taken to the opinion page of the New York Times.

Pepper will speak at 7 p.m. at the Jordan Ballroom at Boise State University.
