St. Louis American 29th Annual Salute to Excellence in Education Scholarship and Awards Gala

Dear Flance Families and Friends,

It was a great pleasure and honor to attend the St. Louis American Foundation's 29th Annual Salute to Excellence in Education Scholarship & Awards Gala on Saturday, October 1st, 2016. The amount of awards given through the St. Louis American Foundation was truly impressive and winners' stories were inspiring. 
Of course, the highlight of the evening for me was the introduction of our own Aurdeen Clarkson as the 2016 PNC Early Childhood Educator of the Year. Aurdeen is one of our infant room teachers and has worked at Flance Early Learning Center since its inception. She is truly deserving of the award and we (Flance) are very proud to work with her.
I encourage you to watch the St. Louis American's short video about Aurdeen by watching below or following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljsJZBtwNHw

Sincerely,
Mark E. Cross, Center Director
