Congratulations, Kim Hahn! Illinois Children’s Champion 2017

Congratulations to Kim Hahn of the Children’s Center for being named one of four Children’s Champions by the Illinois Association for the Education of Young Children. She was recently honored with a luncheon and ceremony in Springfield.

The ceremony honored individuals in Illinois who exemplify leadership, advocacy and professionalism. Kim has inspired others as a motivator, coach, and mentor to countless teachers, students and parents through her work at Illinois Central College, SAL Child Care Connection and volunteering through the Heart of Illinois AEYC.

Carol Weisheit, Illinois AEYC used the words of Bill Gates when congratulating the champions: “The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 turn out.”

Thank you Kim for influencing these early years.
