SEEDA holds work session regarding the future of Hand in Hand Center.

The Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority held a work session Tuesday night to garner ideas from local groups on the future of the Hand in Hand Early Childhood Education Center in Sheridan.

During the meeting, SEEDA Chairman Dr. Paul Young said that it's the consensus of the board to do things right and not rush.

Two different groups were on hand to express their interest in the facility, as PJ Treide representing Thrive By Five and Stevie Phillips with True Colors LLC indicated that they have each developed a business plan for operating the center in the future.

Young said that the SEEDA Board has a lot of things to consider in the coming weeks, including deciphering what exactly went wrong that lead to the closure of the facility and to work on a Request for Proposal in hopes of having it ready by the end of this month.

SEEDA will hold a special meeting next Tuesday, June 14th at 7 am in the Board Room at Sheridan College to further address the issue.
