Chatfield Honored
The Ohio Association for the Education for Young Children (OAEYC) recently presented Keith “K.C.” Chatfield with the 2014 Friend of Children Award.  The award was presented on April 4 at Shawnee State University during the Fabulous Friday Conference. The award celebrates those committed to childhood advocacy, excellence and professionalism.

Chatfield, along with Mary Ann Myers Piercy of the United Way, were recognized for providing books and reading to children throughout Scioto County. Chatfield, who is the advisor for the STAR, Inc. !MPACT team, takes a group of individuals to the Carousel Center and to various elementary schools to read books, using interaction to engage the students in the reading experience.

“I am humbled to receive this award and couldn’t have been as successful in this program without the members of the !MPACT team who accompany me and share in the experience with the kids,” Chatfield said. “All of those who participated will be recognized for this achievement too.”

Chatfield said STAR, Inc., will present certificates to each member of the !MPACT team who has participated in the reading program over the past year.

Chatfield was presented the award based on his outstanding contributions to the community for advancing the cause of making a difference in the lives of children.
