Skagit Valley College Oak Harbor Head Start, a program with Hand In Hand Early Learning Center, presented the Oak Harbor Lions Club with the Head Start Hero award.

Members of the club installed a ramp and sidewalk throughout the preschool playground.

They provided many volunteer hours in order to complete this project.

The project ensures that all children can access all areas of the playground.

“These men are true heroes for our program and we wish to let them know how much their efforts are truly appreciated,” said Betty Judd, manager of Head Start.

Head Start provides preschool services for economically disadvantaged students with special needs.
