Growing Up Healthy has a fabulous list of member/partners in our coalition. I could (and probably should) do a blog post on each of them and highlight the wonderful work they do to improve the lives of marginalized families in Rice County. But today I feel compelled to highlight one specific partner – Faribault Community Education. Have you heard of them? The last few years they were always mentioned in the midst of some controversy between the City of Faribault and the School District – but have you heard of them recently?
Let’s just say that it is a forward looking, positive, ready for action department. The new Director, Anne Marie Leland, is collaborative and easy to work with – but also driven to succeed. And she has an amazing staff that are clearly pulling together to continue to build wonderful programs all for the benefit of the Faribault community.
If you haven’t been in touch with Faribault Community Education recently, you should. Check out their latest catalog of opportunities. Like them on Facebook. Learn about all the fantastic ways in which they support children and youth, babies and adults. And stay tuned – because more great things are going to keep coming from Faribault Community Education!
