Last week, we sent out a poll to the ECMSHP community to help us choose a name for our ECMHSP Blog. With a majority of votes, we had a clear winner. ECMHSP’s blog will now be called: From Harvest to Head Start.
Our new blog name represents the services and support ECMHSP has been providing our farmworker families for more than thirty years: from the fields and orchards where they perform back-breaking work to feed America, to the Head Start centers where we provide their children with high-quality early childhood education. As stated in our mission, we are committed to preparing the children of migrant and seasonal farm workers for success, and our blog name reflects how our commitment goes beyond the classroom.
We want to thank everyone that voted for a name for the ECMSHP blog. We had great participation and feedback from ECMSHP staff, as well as members of the Board of Directors and Policy Council.
We especially want to thank those that submitted name suggestions. We will be saving these creative titles for future ECMSHP reports and projects. Here are a few of our favorite write-in votes:
- The Daily Harvest
- ¡Pequeños Éxitos!
- Heads Up with Head Start
With the new name comes a new blog design, and many new exciting features. These steps are part of our efforts to amplify our voice on behalf of the farmworker families we serve.
