College professor helps student with baby, holds child during lecture

A professor at Texas Southern University made sure that a student was able to take notes in his class when she had to bring her newborn to class.

Ebony Greenfield's son was born premature, but she had already registered for the class Dr. Tyrone Dixon was teaching. Greenfield is working on her master's degree but didn't have any child care, so she brought her son with her, KTRK reported.
