We’d like to congratulate one of our Early Head Start parents and volunteers, Mr. Charles Ivory Simms on being awarded an honorary high school diploma from Harlan County Schools Superintendent, Mr. Michael Howard.

Mr. Simms received this diploma in recognition of his exemplary service in the military after having enlisted at the age of 17 and serving two tours in Vietnam. Mr. Simm’s daughter, Janae is in enrolled in our Gray’s Knob Child Development Center where he is actively involved in her learning by reading and telling stories to the children. We encourage our parents to share their culture and heritage and we feel honored to have him volunteer in our classrooms. THANK-YOU, Mr. Simms!!!
