At the request of MEA-MFT, Senator Jon Tester visited Great Falls Head Start on May 1, 2009.
MEA-MFT board member and Great Falls Head Start president Shannon Bender greeted Senator Tester and his wife, Sharla. Together with Great Falls Head Start administrators, Shannon led a tour and discussion about the issues facing Head Start.
Senator Tester was very impressed with the program and the benefits it provides to Montana children and their families.
During his visit, MEA-MFT members and Senator Tester discussed these facts about Head Start.
MEA-MFT looks forward to working with Senator Tester and the Montana Congressional delegation as they continue to advocate for Montana Head Start.
Thank you, Senator Tester, for your interest in Head Start!
