The Miami Chapter Black Nurses Association congratulates Ms. Annie Neasman, past President, Miami-BNA for receiving the Early Learning Coalition Lifetime Achievement Award.
“The Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring early care and education for children in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. Through a variety of affordable and innovative early education and voluntary pre-kindergarten programs, the Coalition serves more than 50,000 children ages birth to 12 years old and their families.
Founded in 2000, the Coalition is among 31 similar organizations in the State of Florida established following the enactment of the School Readiness Act, which consolidated Florida’s early learning services into one integrated program.
The mission of the Early Learning Coalition is to promote high-quality school readiness, voluntary pre-kindergarten and after school programs, thus increasing all children’s chances of achieving future educational success and becoming productive members of society. The Coalition seeks to further the physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs of Miami-Dade and Monroe County children with a priority toward the ages before birth through age 5.”
We are so proud of you Ms. Neasman!
Dr. Linda Brown and the Members of the Miami-BNA Board of Directors
