Last Day Q&A: Crystal Givens

This month’s Last Day Q&A is especially bittersweet. Crystal Givens has served us well as Program Director for the last three years, but she’s movin’ on up as Vice President of Statewide Supports with our friends Early Learning Indiana.  We wish her all the best in her new role – and we’re glad she’s not going far!

    I am so, so proud of your growth in this field! I have been cheering (on the sidelines) you on to victory and sending up prayers as you evolve in your career… super proud of you! You definitely add value to the ECE field and bring compassion, understanding and empathy to everyone who knows the value of quality early care and education! God Speed🙏🏽
