During their regular monthly meeting Wednesday night, the Hand-in-Hand Early Childhood Education Center took an important step forward in its planned evolution of its Board of Directors. Longtime board members Mark Englert and Mayor Dave Kinskey tendered their resignations, as the Board is in the process of transitioning into more of a working Board. Hand In Hand Executive Director Susan Brayton says that Englert and Kinskey were pivotal in making the center a reality.
Both Kinskey and Englert said that they will continue to lend their guidance and support to the Center, through their continued roles on the Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority Board.
The Board also voted unanimously to accept Paul Del Rossi as its newest member and elected him Chairman.
Brayton indicated that they will be looking to add more board members throughout the year to further the transition.
Brayton said that there are expansion plans in the future for the Center, as they will look to add another classroom soon. The Hand-in-Hand Early Childhood Education Center opened its doors in Sheridan in September of 2009.
