Commissioner Elba Garcia read the Proclamation and the work of Early Childhood Centers, lauding their work in improving early development and learning opportunities, including early literacy programs in Dallas County. A spokeswoman for the Low Birth Weight Development Center stood beside a mother and her now very healthy toddler who was only two (2) pounds at birth, as living proof of the critical role that agencies play in the development and care of low birth weight children.  Commissioner Garcia cheerfully encouraged all citizens to work to make a good investment in early childhood, adding “teachers and others who make a difference in the lives of young children in Dallas County deserve thanks and recognition.”
