The Lynne Angland Award: Honoring contributions to Oregon’s Child Care & Early Education System
Lynne Angland was a passionate visionary dedicated to Oregon’s families. She was Vice-Chair of the Commission for Child Care from 2004 to 2008, when her untimely death left a void that only her diligent advocacy could have filled. Lynne’s service, passion, and leadership improved the lives of Oregon’s children and families, and as a former owner of a child care center – opened to benefit her employees – Lynne personally understood that quality child care is dynamic as a workforce and early childhood education issue.
Honoring Lynne’s commitment to strengthening Oregon’s next generation, and the Commission for Childcare which established the Lynne Angland Award, the Early Learning Council continues Lynne’s charge through honoring those contributing to improving child care and the lives of our children.
The Lynne Angland Award recognizes people and organizations who improve safety, quality, affordability, and access to child care at state and local levels. An annual award, it both memorializes Lynne and spotlights the incredible ongoing work dedicated to improving care.
