Stephen F. Austin State University Early Childhood Research Center Dedication

It was a busy weekend as Stephen F. Austin State University dedicated its one-of-a-kind Early Childhood Research Center Sunday afternoon. It is a significant part of the James I. Perkins College of Education and serves as home to research, teaching and a charter school.

This grand opening reaffirms and magnifies SFASU's role as a statewide and national leader in higher education. The results of research and applying the outcomes will benefit students and teachers alike.

As State Senator for Senate District 3 in 2005, I enjoyed working on this terrific project, and I was delighted to join in the celebration. No doubt, the work done here by Dr. Janice Pattillo and her team will help teachers develop critical skills to educate our young students.

Go Lumberjacks!
