I am happy to introduce the newest member of our center leadership team. His name is Andrew Jaggers. He will be the Center Director at the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly Center at 3522 N. Central Avenue. He will be inheriting a lot of history when he sits down in the Director’s chair this week (after he gets thru about a zillion hours of “new hire” paperwork and computer training!). Our Lilly Center, which, BTW, is open to the public and currently enrolling new students ages 2-6, has been serving the Watson-McCord Neighborhood for over 30 years. Andrew holds a BA in Early Childhood from Lincoln (IL) Christian College. I was lucky to be able to pull him away from his paperwork for a few minutes this week to learn more about him. Both of Andrew’s parents are teachers so he has education in his blood. His father is currently an elementary school principal. He is the middle child of three children (which I have read makes him a great mediator–a skill that certainly will come in handy negotiating with toddlers!). He played baseball in college and his hobby is boxing. We welcome Andrew to our Day Nursery family.
