BYU Grad Wins Praise for Clear Backpacks

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Dale Jeffery, A 33-year-old MBA working at a Houston import-export firm recently went into business when he read an ad that a Georgia school had placed in a magazine. The school was looking for clear backpacks, a trend that has become popular with numerous schools. Jeffery, who holds an undergraduate degree in Asian studies from Brigham Young University and an MBA from Thunderbird, an Arizona-based graduate school specializing in international business, decided to take on the challenge he saw there.

Jeffrey seized the opportunity and contacted friends in China, who agreed to make prototypes of clear backpacks for him. Now, business is booming an Jeffrey services about 4,000 schools who presently require the clear backpacks. The schools value the backpacks because they make security easier, since administrators can see what is in them.
