Success by Six Awards

More than 130 community leaders from the Valley came together Wednesday to promote their mission that all children, from birth to five years of age, are ready to enter school healthy and prepared to succeed.

The Success by Six Coalition held its third annual Early Childhood Leadership Summit at James Madison University.

The summit included work sessions on the coalition's goals to broaden awareness of early childhood development.

Pat Kennedy, grant coordinator, says that the coalition has seen a lot of progress over the past three years.

She says, "So we've seen a significant decrease in the PAL scores. So I would say the work that the summit is doing, the work that the Success by Six Coalition is doing is really helping to prepare our children so more children are ready to learn."

WHSV General Manager Tracey Jones accepted the award for Early Childhood Corporate Champion. Other awards went to Chick-Fil-A for local champion (business), Annie Hololob for local champion (individual), and Yolanda Gallego for the lifetime achievement award.
