WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A woman who served a Wichita Falls non-profit for 40 years was honored Friday.
A retirement reception was held for Child Care Incorporated's long time Executive Director, Margaret Stewart.
Organizers say Stewart faithfully led the CCI through the changing world of childcare. They add her heart has always been dedicated to safe, affordable and educational child care for working families.
"Its been wonderful, of course, to be able to see children everyday, and I've worked with wonderful board members and had the opportunity to meet lots of people in the community that I probably wouldn't have met otherwise," Stewart said.
For touching thousands of young children's lives, Margaret was presented with a plaque and a flag. $1,000 was also donated to the non-profit in her name.
Organizers of the event say her leadership will be missed.
