On Thursday, May 11, 2017, the Allegany County Judy Center and APPLES for Children collaborated to provide an Allegany County Childcare Providers Appreciation Banquet at Beall Elementary School. Childcare providers were served dinner, and each provider was given a certificate recognizing their years of service. Both center-based and home-based childcare providers celebrated in this appreciation day. Jody Hershberger was voted as the Provider of the Year. Jody has 25 years of service in the childcare field and is currently the Supervisor at Kids Korner Childcare Center at Beall Elementary School. A special Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Darlene Shelton, who has worked for more than 36 years at Head Start and Kids Korner.
