|Melissa Wigmore and Saka Coy meet with |
Oregon State Representative David Gromberg
CSC Head Start Parent Representative Melissa Wigmore and Teacher/Advocate Saka Coy attended the Oregon Head Start Association Winter Legislative Meeting held in Salem in February 2013. On Thursday February 7, they joined other Oregon Head Start staff and parents at the State Capital to meet with the State House and State Senate lawmakers. Meetings with Oregon State Representative David Gomberg from Lincoln City and Oregon State Senator Arnie Roblan from Coos Bay provided opportunities for Melissa to educate about the CSC Head Start program. Both lawmakers and their staff enthusiastically welcomed parents and staff into their chambers and listened to individual parent stories about Head Start. The lawmakers told Melissa and Saka that they fully support Head Start and will do all they can to protect future funding of all Head Start programs in Oregon.
