Congratulations to DEC's 2018 Award Winners!

September 7, 2018

We’re proud and excited to formally congratulate our 2018 DEC Award Winners. Each year DEC honors individuals who are making a difference in the lives of young children and their families. We are pleased to recognize our colleagues and students for their contributions to the field and our organization.


We also want to recognize everyone that took the time to submit nominations. It gets harder each year to choose from so many qualified individuals. Lastly we want to send a big thank you to our Awards Program Committee, Diana LaRocco, Laurie Dinnebeil, Eva Horn, Judy Swett, and the DEC Awards Program Chair, Jennifer Kilgo.
