On Friday, April 12th, the Partnership for Children of Johnston County (PFCJC) held the 2019 Champions for Children Breakfast. The Champions for Children event recognizes the significant achievements of individuals and local businesses who are committed to quality early experiences for young children. The event concluded the Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration hosted by NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, which spotlights early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities.
This year’s Champions have all made significant impacts through personal commitments, time, talent and advocacy to support the health, education, safety and overall well-being of Johnston County’s young children.
