Dear Rotarians and Friends of Rotary,
Next Tuesday August 20 we have our breakfast meeting (7:30AM @ Perricone’s), where will have an important presentation titled: "Early learning: The wisest investment we could make."
Our Guest Speaker is David Lawrence Jr. David retired in 1999 as publisher of The Miami Herald to work in the area of early childhood development and readiness. He is president of The Early Childhood Initiative Foundation and “Education and Community Leadership Scholar” at the University of Miami’s School of Education and Human Development. He leads The Children’s Movement of Florida, aimed at making children the state’s top priority for investment and decision-making. He is a member of the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet and twice chaired the Florida Partnership for School Readiness. In 2002 and 2008 he led successful campaigns for The Children’s Trust, a dedicated source of early intervention and prevention funding for children in Miami-Dade. He is the “founding chair.” He is a board member of the Foundation for Child Development in New York.
