Many Transylvania County Children Now Get A Better Chance

Numerous studies tell us that what happens in a child’s early years sets the foundation for all the years that follow. Unfortunately, too many of our children do not receive the attention or the resources that they need to build this foundation.

I am honored to be in a role where I could help secure funding to support the efforts of these dedicated and compassionate leaders, volunteers, and professionals. I appreciated their acknowledgment, and the beautiful plaque they presented me. 

Thanks to a non-partisan and collaborative effort in Transylvania County by many volunteers and organizations, more of our children will now have a better chance to land in the middle class. This weekend county leaders unveiled a plan to bring a unique Sesame Street experience to aid in their Early Childhood Initiatives. Transylvania County will be only the fourth in America, and the first rural community anywhere to take these steps.
