The Olympic Association for the Education of Young Children, which is observing its 20th anniversary, recently recognized its founders as a prelude to the Week of the Young Child April 6-12.

Those receiving founding awards included (from left) Yvette Cline, Barbara Clampett, Joy Sheedy, Marilyn Sage Walsh, Susan Lynch Richie, Tracey Hosselkus, Martha Standley, Lois Blank and Mary Wegmann.

The awards were given by current association president Marion Hedin and immediate past-president, Cristie Browne.

The Week of the Young Child focuses public attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognizes the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

OPAEYC was formed as a local affiliate of the Washington Association for the Education of Young Children (WAEYC) in 1994.
