LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The Early Learning Centers of Lubbock is hosting its 15th annual Champions for Children Banquet.

The banquet is presented by D. & K. Hunt Electric, Happy State Bank, Sonic, Texas Tech Department of Political Science, and City Bank.

The banquet will be held at the FiberMax Center for Discovery (1121 Canyon Lake Drive) on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

The Champions for Children Banquet will honor Plains Capital Bank, Parkhill, McDougal Companies, State Representative John Frullo, Frenship ISD’s Keri Henderson, and Early Learning Centers’ Jazmine Ledesma for advocating and working with young children.

Guests will be treated to a Q&A panel with ELC parents and lunch catered by Teddy Jacks.

The Early Learning Centers of Lubbock will also announce the naming of a new center. Executive Director of the Early Learning Centers of Lubbock, Lena Scaff, says, “the Champions for Children banquet provides an opportunity for us to recognize the importance of the early years and show appreciation to the teachers and advocates for young children.”

In 1943, the first center opened to serve low-income mothers fighting in the war effort. Today, there are four operating centers serving North and East Lubbock. The Early Learning Centers of Lubbock’s mission is to educate and nurture young children and their families for successful futures.

Now, the Early Learning Centers of Lubbock is a non-profit organization and an agency of the Lubbock United Way.

Individual tickets for the banquet are $50 apiece and can be purchased by contacting Lena Scaff here or calling 806-765-9981. All proceeds will benefit the children that attend the centers.
