Head Start Alumni Spotlight: Dr. Glenda Allen-Jones

Dr. Glenda Allen-Jones attended Head Start at Charles Kozminski Elementary School, in Chicago, Illinois and is proud to say that Head Start has been a life long journey for her.

“I was a Head Start student, a family worker for Head Start, wrote my doctoral dissertation on parental involvement in Head Start while at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,” Dr. Allen-Jones said.

“I was also a professional researcher for Head Start, and am now an advocate for Early Childhood education in Southeast Louisiana which involves working with the local Head Start agency. I know the positive and powerful efficacy of Head Start and it is paramount to a better future for our children and families.”

Throughout Head Start Awareness Month we will be spotlighting Alumni from across the country. Check back every weekday as we publish new stories!
