Pioneer of early childhood education honored
Kids at Educare center in southern Oklahoma City planted a “Survivor Tree” Thursday in honor of the victims of the federal building bombing.
The tree will eventually be planted in the median in front of the Educare on Grand Boulevard, but for now, the tree will remain inside.
Also on Thursday, a room in the Educare facility was dedicated to John Rex, who worked at American Fidelity Assurance for 35 years, and was a proponent of early childhood education, according to a media release sent out by the agency.
“John’s mission in life was to prepare all children, especially those from low-income families, for learning,” Bob Ross, president of the Inasmuch Foundation said.
