SEATTLE—Senator Christine Rolfes (D-Bainbridge Island) was honored for her commitment to the first five years of a child’s life on Thursday, Sept. 29 , with a Crayon Award from the Early Learning Action Alliance.
“The foundation for educational success is built in the earliest years,” said Children’s Alliance deputy director Jon Gould. Access to high-quality early learning is critical to closing the gap for children who start out with fewer opportunities. Senator Rolfes understands that early learning builds strong kids and strong communities. Her public service has improved opportunities for Washington’s children.”
