New trustees elected to 4C for Children Board

May 13, 2015


Four new members were elected to 4C for Children's Board of Trustees at the agency's May 4 annual meeting. They join 21 continuing members of the board to help further 4C efforts to support the adults who care for young children and to advocate for public support for quality early education and care for all children.

4C's 2014 annual report, Toward a Bright Future, was also released during the meeting. The report highlights the many initiatives launched in 2014 and the ways the agency made a difference in the lives of over 190,000 children by getting them ready for success in school and life. Board chair Diane Jordan-Grizzard emphasized the agency's commitment to continue growing those numbers in the current fiscal year.
