This March, NHSA celebrated Women’s History Month by recognizing and highlighting the significant contributions of women to the Head Start community. NHSA recently spoke with Rural Utah Child Development Executive Director Keri Allred, who shared the important role women have played in creating strong Head Start programs, how Head Start has empowered women over the years, and what the future holds.
“I think it’s a great time to be a woman in Head Start, it’s an empowering time for all of us. As we bond together as women and move forward, great things are going to happen,” said Keri.
Thank you to the many Head Start champions whose legacy we are celebrating this Women’s History Month!
