Sen. Richardville receives award for early childhood advocacy
LANSING-Sen. Randy Richardville recently received an award at the state Capitol from the Early Childhood Investment Corporation based on his support of programs for young children.
"Many studies show that the early years of a child’s life can make a tremendous difference in how they will grow and mature," said Richardville, R-Monroe. "The care that they receive at a young age often impacts their behavioral, physical and emotional well-being. It’s important that parents and community members create the right conditions for early childhood development as it can help prevent problems later in life."
Parents, teachers, students and other corporation supporters from across the state gathered for their annual Star Power rally. The group was created in August of 2005 to ensure that every young child in Michigan has a great start, with parents who are committed to educational achievement.
"I am proud to support this great organization because I am dedicated to its mission of helping prepare children for success in school and later in life," Richardville said.
