Campaign Kickoff Breakfast
The event was a huge success, thanks to sponsors SaviBank and Dreamchasers RVs. The Kick Off Breakfast had inspirational speeches by United Way of Skagit County’s Board President Bill Aslett and Vice-President Lisa Janicki, as well as the new Early Learning Coordinator of Skagit County Lyndie Case.
Of course, how can one have a kick off without a kick off, or a little competitive fun? We had a field goal kick off competition between our own Debra Lancaster and a few of Skagit County’s Superintendents: Carl Bruner of Mount Vernon, Mark Wenzel of Anacortes, Laurel Browning of Burlington-Edison, & Phil Brockman. Good thing they are all great at their day jobs, as each kick was wildly off mark; which made the winner of the event, United Way of Skagit County’s Communication Coordinator Spencer Pope who volunteered to serve as the goal post.
Once again a big thanks goes out to our Pacesetter organizations, it’s you that make our efforts for sustainable, positive change for Skagit county possible: Burlington-Edison School District, Mount Vernon School District, Sedro-Woolley School District, Anacortes School District, Puget Sound Energy, Community Action of Skagit County, Skagit Bank, Skagit County Government, Skagit Regional Health, Tesoro Refining and Marketing company, United Way of Skagit County (employees and board), US Bank, Shell Puget Sound Refinery, Washington Federal.
The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading put together this brilliant video that highlights many of the reasons United Way of Skagit County regards Early Education as one of the most important Key Influence Sectors to our community.
