Thank you the 2016 School Readiness Summit Sponsors

Local businesses and organizations support early childhood education efforts in Summit County

Summit Education Initiative (SEI) and the entire 2016 School Readiness Summit planning committee appreciate the support our efforts receive from local businesses and community organizations in Summit County. We thank the following for their financial contributions to the 2016 Summit County First Things First School Readiness Summit, “The Early Childhood Effect.”

Kindergarten Ready Sponsor – PNC Bank

pnc_4cPNC Bank was the presenting sponsor for Summit County’s first School Readiness Summit. SEI hopes to form School Readiness Coalitions within all school districts and Akron neighborhoods in Summit County as a result of the conversations attendees shared during the Summit on Oct. 25. Those who would like to reference some of the materials we distributed during the Summit (keynote presentation slides, video links, etc.) may visit the 2016 School Readiness Summit webpage here.
