Central KY. Head Start hosted WATCH D.O.G.S. 101 as a part of Parent University recently. Interested fathers and father-figures were introduced to the program and provided suggestions on ways to assist in their centers.  One WATCH D.O.G. shared, with others in attendance, his experience with the program. Eric Bell, a Top D.O.G. from West Main shared that the program made him “feel motivated.” He described how the kids loved seeing him in their center. He stated that the program was proactive in assisting children earlier in their educational journey.

Another WATCH D.O.G. from the Radcliff center encouraged fathers and father-figures to get involved in the program. Khiry Thompson, dad at the Radcliff center, volunteered last year as a Watch D.O.G. and is now an Instructional Assistant at the Radcliff center. Below are pictures from the event. Special thanks to the R.L. Schreiber Spice Company in Lebanon, KY. for their sponsorship of the event.
