Head Start Awareness month recognized

From staff and press reports

 

On October 22, 1982, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October Head Start Awareness Month.

Thirty-one years after the proclamation, his words still inspire many to celebrate this great program: “Perhaps the most significant factor in the success of Head Start has been the involvement of parents, volunteers, and the community. Their commitment and the services provided by dedicated Head Start staff have been instrumental in creating a quality program that truly provides young children with a ‘head start’ in life.”

In that vein, Louisville Mayor Will Hill recently signed a proclamation recognizing Head Start Awareness Month.

The Winston County Head Start complex will host a recognition program Thursday, October 24 at 9:30 a.m.
