Kay Jennings, Central graduate and Executive Director of Talladega Clay Randolph Child Care Corporation (TCR) presented the Coosa County school board members with an update on the proposal of opening an additional Head Start and Early Head Start program in Coosa County. The Head Start program located in Goodwater will continue operations while the new, additional program would be located in the former Central High School building adjacent to the current Central Elementary and Central High Schools. Mrs. Jennings was joined by Kelly Mumper, Cheaha Regional Head Start Director, who helped secure a $343,456.00 grant to renovate a portion of the former Central High School building into a state of the art Head Start program. We are thankful at the prospect of having a state of the art early childhood education program adjacent to Central Elementary and High Schools and what this will mean to Coosa County families and students entering kindergarten. Additionally, this presents a unique opportunity for fulfilling the vision of Central High School students gaining work experience in real world settings.
