17th Annual Business Leaders for Early Education Breakfast Hosted by Women United on February 24, 2022
7:00am – 9:00am at the Tucson Convention Center
In February, 2021 we celebrated our 16th Annual Women United’s Business Breakfast “In Bed” with a live video premiere promoting the importance of early childhood education with our business community and also celebrated our two Literacy Champion award winners. The video was viewed 735 times by community members and helped us raise $96,390 for early childhood education. Women United spearheads this event each year as they utilize their combined financial power and collective talents of local philanthropic women leaders to address early childhood literacy in our community. Children who read proficiently by the end of third grade are more likely to succeed academically and graduate from high school prepared for college and careers. 1 in 4 children in Pima County are not reaching this crucial benchmark.
Thank you to all who were able to join us for the Live Virtual Video Premiere! Each year during the Business Breakfast two Literacy Champions are awarded for their success in literacy education. These awards are given to two educators in our community who have gone above and beyond to teach literacy to our youngest community members. We look forward to celebrating in person in February, 2022.
Congratulations to our winners:
- Haley Carolin, Keeling Elementary School, 3rd Grade
- Kristen Kvaran, Tanque Verde Community Preschool
