KC Early Childhood Center To Dedicate Garden In Honor Of Former Director

The Kilgore College Early Childhood Center will dedicate a "sensory garden" in honor of the center's first director, Mary Ann Kraemer, on April 18.  The event will be held in conjunction with Week of the Young Child, April 13-19.  Week of the Young Child is an annual event sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world's largest early childhood education association, with nearly 100,000 members and a network of over 300 local, state and regional affiliates.

According to the NAEYC Web site (www.naeyc.org), "the purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs."

Kraemer, director of the ECC from 1987-1993, will be honored at the annual ECC Family Picnic 5:30 p.m. April 18 at the garden located in front of the ECC building on the Kilgore College campus. 

The garden, landscaped by Richard Holloway of New Orleans Gardens, has been made possible by Mary Ann's family in honor of her retirement from education.

The ECC is also holding its annual fundraiser. Raffle tickets are currently being sold to the public for $5 each to benefit the ECC.  Winners of three prize packages (attached) will be announced at the picnic.  Although the picnic is only open to families, staff and former staff members, anyone is invited to purchase a raffle ticket to support the ECC.  There will only be 500 tickets available for purchase.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
