CEDAC to Honor Mel King at 40th Anniversary Celebration

CEDAC is proud to celebrate 40 years of strengthening communities across the Commonwealth. We are thrilled to announce that we will honor former State Representative Mel King as we commemorate this anniversary this month. As a Massachusetts State Representative, Mel King sponsored legislation in 1978 which created CEDAC with a mission to support community-based development organizations.

At the same event, CEDAC’s affiliate Children’s Investment Fund will also present Judy Cody, executive director of the Beverly Children’s Learning Center (BCLC), with the Mav Pardee Award for Building Quality.  The award recognizes organizations or individuals working to address the need for physical environments that support high-quality early education.
