Margie Reeves dedicated more than 60 years advocating on behalf of children and families across Washington State. She worked tirelessly to assure that children have early and sustainable access to safe and nurturing places to live and learn, and that families have the training and assistance they need to raise their children.
Margie served statewide as a member of the Governor's Task Force on Child Care and the Children's Budget Coalition and was State Advocacy chair for Public Health and Safety Networks. She was a founding member of the statewide Child Care Resource and Referral Network, the Children's Alliance, the Washington Association for the Education of Young Children, the Child Care Coordinating Committee, and the Early Learning Action Alliance.
Margie's accomplishments are many, including being recognized as the second Head Start Director in Thurston, Mason, and Lewis counties, a founder of the Child Care Action Council, a founding member of the Thurston Early Childhood Coalition, and the statewide Chair of Children and Family Issues for the League of Women Voters. Governor Christine Gregoire recently recognized and honored Margie for her longstanding advocacy and support of early learning, children's education, and family support.
