We just received a beautiful certificate in the mail announcing that Central Texas 4C, Inc. is one of 12 Statewide Semi-Finalists in the 2017 H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards. The Chairman and CEO of H-E-B, Mr. Charles Butt, signed the certificate and it was accompanied by a $500.00 gift card. The letter stated that "Obviously, our readers (judges) were very impressed by your written comments and your extensive professional accomplishments…. You will find a small token of our gratitude for all that you do each and every day to inspire and enlighten young minds. Your program is helping to shape the future of Texas and we thank you for your passion and your dedication. You are an inspiration to us all." It was signed by Jill Reynolds, H-E-B's Public Affairs Manager and the producer of the Excellence in Education Awards.
Needless to say, we are very proud to be one of the twelve! And gratitude goes out to our staff, families and communities for being the main reasons that 4C continues to be recognized for excellence in early childhood education. The Head Start Advantage is real. Awards are nice, but seeing the success of our Head Start children and families is the real prize!
