Dr. Pamela Hall, an associate professor of psychology at Barry University, has received another award for her support of early childhood education. Hall’s work benefits children from low-income households.
The most recent award comes from Miami-Dade Community Action and Human Services, which selected Hall for its 2018-2019 Head Start / Early Head Start Outstanding Community Partner Award.
Dr. Maite Riestra-Quintero, assistant director of Early Childhood Programs in the Head Start and Early Head Start Division, presented the award. Nadie Mondestin, executive director of the Haitian Youth and Community Center, accepted the award on Hall’s behalf.
A department of the county government, Community Action and Human Services concentrates on “empowering families, individuals and communities through the provision of comprehensive social services.”
This is Dr. Hall’s second award. Last October, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of South Florida recognized Hall with its Spirit of Service-Learning Award for her community-based project that provided social and emotional support to children in a Head Start / Early Head Start Program managed by the Haitian Youth and Community Center.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Hall for all her hard work and for receiving this award.
