Head Start honored with Growing Great People Award
The Gladstone School Board presented a Growing Great People Award to Clackamas County Children's Commission Head Start in thanks for their decade of partnership at the Gladstone Center for Children and Families.
"From the time the GCCF opened, Head Start has worked to help Gladstone children get ready for kindergarten while supporting parents in child development strategies," said GCCF Director Jere Applebee. "Their work impacts not just children's education, but their health, family stability, and access to social services."
School Board Chair Kristin Eaton presented the award to Head Start Executive Director Sue Elder and Debbie Stedman, education supervisor at Gladstone Head Start.
