Congratulations to all of the IHSA award winners!


Congratulations Jan! 👏

Congratulations to Jan Williams, Idaho Head Start Association 2022 Head Start Hero! Jan's love for literacy and reading brought her to Head Start. In 2012, Jan provided enough funding for Friends of Children and Families, Inc. Head Start & Early Head Start to send each student home with a personal copy of Dr. Seuss' ABC book. Jan has provided funding that allows FOCAF to provide 10 books to each child in the Head Start and Early Head Start program each year since then. Hundreds of families have started their home libraries with the books provided by Jan. Jan's generosity has improved academic success, vocabulary development, and success for these children and their siblings throughout school and into adulthood. Thanks Jan.

Congrats to Shagaye!

Congratulations to Shagaye Burbank, Idaho Head Start Association 2022 Teacher of the Year! Shagaye is a Lead Teacher for WICAP Community Collaborative in Caldwell and, like many staff members, Shagaye started her Head Start journey as a parent. Shagaye brings a special enthusiasm to the children and families she serves as well as to her colleagues. One of her colleagues said, "Shagaye can light up a room with her positive energy and her warm smile." Her students enjoy fresh vegetables because Shagaye created a garden plot at the center, they have more books to take home because Shagaye helped secure a $10,000 Kindergarten Readiness Grant, and they are ready for kindergarten because of Shagaye's close collaboration with the Caldwell School District. Thanks Shagaye.


Congrats to Neveah!

Congratulations to Neveah Elliston for winning the Idaho Head Start Association Alumni Scholarship. Neveah attended the North Idaho College Head Start Julian Bucher Early Learning Center in Bonners Ferry. She credits this time with giving her a love of learning. She's a high school senior with a 4.0 GPA and was selected Homecoming Queen by her classmates. Neveah has been very active with Future Famers of America and American Red Cross, dedicating hours to mentoring young girls. She plans to be the first person in her family to graduate from college. Niveah shared these thoughts with us, "I know that effort can impact your life so greatly that the sky becomes the limit. My goal in life is to truly make a positive impact in the world."
