Head Start Student and Parent Succeed Together

Posted September 19, 2018

Sydnie Bowman, a single parent, enrolled her daughter Journie in our Incarnate Word Early Head Start program in 2015. Her daughter then transitioned into Head Start and excelled over the next two years. Journie has now completed the Head Start program and is a smart, talented kindergartener!

In May of 2018, she received her degree. Now, Sydnie will begin graduate school to work towards a Master’s Degree in Social Work.

Staff at Incarnate Word admire Sydnie for her outgoing personality and unwavering motivation. She regularly shares the educational, health, social and other benefits of Head Start with those in her community and is grateful for the support she received as a parent.
