Sunrise Guests: The importance of early education in The Valley

SUNBURY —  The Greater Susquehanna Valley Early Learning Investment Commission was established statewide 10 years ago by former Governor Ed Rendell.


Art Thomas has been part of the local chapter for about eight years and he was on WKOK Sunrise discussing the mission of this commission, “To spread awareness of the importance of quality early learning for all of our youth.”


Thomas expanded on why this is an important program, “We both probably reflect on the fact that we had a great childhood and a quality upbringing, but so many of our youth do not have the luxury of following that path and we need to make sure that we have an environment available that provides quality early learning for all our youth.”
