Foundations Health & Wholeness Honors Ethics in Action Recipient Sue Vincent
Sue Vincent, Executive Director of Encompass Early Education and Care, Inc., has been honored by Foundations Health & Wholeness as a 2020 recipient of their Ethics in Action Award.
Encompass provides care and education for children as young as 6 weeks old up to 12 years, and they serve more than 1,300 children a year. So, when the pandemic hit, Sue knew the decision to close would not only impact the Encompass staff, but the many families that depend on their critical service. Amid the many challenges of ever-evolving state and federal regulations and the fear that a pandemic brings to staff and families, Sue chose to remain open, understanding it was the socially responsible thing to do.
Sue was nominated for an “Ethie” by her colleague Tracy Ardnt.
Tracy feels inspired working alongside Sue, and says, “While Encompass may not be thriving at this moment, I am confident we will survive because of Sue’s leadership and her focus on our mission to serve all children with compassion and advocacy and excellence.” Another colleague, Debbie Ashman added, “Sue has been such a great leader this year, very encouraging to staff and families.”
Encompass is a nonprofit organization with goal of providing a stimulating and accepting environment present a curriculum/program that develops the whole child – socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.
