WASHINGTON, D.C - The White House will be honoring a Tulsa woman as one of eleven individuals from Head Start programs across the country.

Caren Calhoun is the executive director of Tulsa Educare.

"Today's Head Start Champions of Change have collectively shaped the lives of thousands of children and their families," said Roberto Rodriguez, Special Assistant to the President for Education Policy. "Each day, these Champions work to innovate and forge new paths to deliver the support that our most vulnerable children and families need to reach their full potential and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. This work is essential in helping our country win the future."

The White House ceremony with Caren Calhoun will take place Monday at 10:30 a.m. Oklahoma time.
