Karen Kocurek will have one of Buffalo’s newest buildings named after her. Kocurek has served over 20 years on the Board of Directors for the Child Development Center Region Two, and was instrumental in starting the program here. The center serves both Sheridan and Johnson Counties. CDC Executive Director Sandi O’Dell says the new building under construction in Buffalo will be a great move for the center.
CDC Board Chair Valerie Spanos says that Kocurek is one of the quiet heroes in Johnson County.
The new building is expected to cost over $500,000 when complete, and it is the result of a multi-year fundraising campaign. The center will be more centrally located in Buffalo and is due to open near the beginning of the summer.
