On Tuesday, January 7, MECK Pre-K supporters spoke at the Board of County Commissioners meeting. Commissioners were soliciting public input on budget priorities for the coming fiscal year.
MECK Pre-K parent Victoria Robinson and her son Preston were the first to speak.
"It's like he's gone from a baby to a responsible little boy. MECK Pre-K has made a difference for our family, and I know my son will be ready for kindergarten. I think he knows it too," said Robinson.
Robinson ended her comments with these thoughts: "Wouldn't it be great for children throughout the County to enter kindergarten with skills, confidence to succeed? Isn't that what MECK Pre-K is all about?"
We are so grateful to these MECK Pre-K supporters who were willing to share their stories with the County Commissioners.
