A delegation of staff and Board members from the Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development traveled to the Statehouse to hear the official reading of HR 3, a House concurrent resolution congratulating the Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development on its 50th anniversary offered by Representatives Mollie Burke, Tristian Toleno, and Emilie Kornheiser of Brattleboro, and Windham County Senators Becca Balint and Jeannette White.
The resolution reviewed The Prouty Center’s History and accomplishments from its founding in 1969 as one of the first preschool programs in the country for children with special needs, to its purchase in 2016 of the campus of the former Austine School for the Deaf to its broad range of programs that support the success of young children, families and early educators.
“The Prouty Center is truly a cornerstone organization in our region. It provides strong supports to a wide range of families and children, and it works closely with other organizations to help our community thrive. We are so lucky to have had this organization in our community for 50 years. Congratulations to all the staff for the great work you all do!” – Senator Becca Balint
