Early Learning Center to be dedicated today
A dedication ceremony for Clark College’s Early Learning Center is set for 4 p.m. today, Thursday, Sept. 29, on the north end of the school’s main campus, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.
The ceremony will commemorate the first phase of the Oliva Family Early Learning Center. The state of Washington provided $1 million for the project on the condition that the college raises matching funds. A gift from Jan and Steve Oliva of Vancouver allowed the project to move forward.
Kitty Welsh of Vancouver donated the funding for the “Little Penguins’ Gardens” in the Early Learning Center. She made the gift in honor of her late husband, Paul. A bench in the garden is inscribed with her husband’s name.
