Twenty-three pre-school age graduate from Children's Center

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Twenty-three pre-school age children at the Children's Center for Communication and Development walked the stage Friday to receive their diplomas.

Since 1974 the center has led Mississippi in early intervention services for pre-school age children with significant disabilities. Their program provides the necessary skills in language, cognitive and physical development, and emotional growth to prepare them to move to the next stage of their education.

The center currently serves 90 families from as many as 22 South Mississippi counties.

"I'm just so proud these families and children have made it to this point," said Cynthia Bivins, Interim Director. "We feel like we have equipped them to be successful in their education and other aspects of life."

Sarah Case Price will take over as director of the center on July, 1.
