2020 BOLD Leadership
In partnership with Ford Foundation
There is boldness in everyone.
A panel of five BOLD Alumni Leaders who exemplify Head Start’s long-term impact selected the winners from hundreds of nominations.
Through all of 2020’s turbulence, Head Start leaders boldly faced the challenges and lived up to an unprecedented level of extraordinary leadership. In the midst of chaos, they supported families most affected by the events of 2020, continuing to educate children, partner with parents, and serve as a vital bridge to additional community supports. The National Head Start Association’s 2020 BOLD was created to recognize, celebrate, and reward this bold leadership.
