First in Future Podcast: NCECF Executive Director Tracy Zimmerman

Summary: In North Carolina, a remarkable coalition of organizations has gathered to distill the best ideas from across the early childhood community to help shape our state’s future. This week, we’re joined by Tracy Zimmerman, executive director of the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation, to talk about the importance of collaboration in investing in early years, the draw of North Carolina, and the strongest – and most flawed – superhero out there.

Excerpt: “What gives me hope is the children across our state who have the potential to be and do anything if we give them the opportunity to fulfill it. Every child is born with incredible potential, and not every child has the opportunity to fulfill it.”

Book recommendation: The Other Wes Moore, Wes Moore
