CSUMB names "Cradle-to-Career" director

No long after arriving in Monterey, CSUMB President Eduardo Ochoa began talking about a model called "Cradle-to-Career", which creates partnerships among different agencies to make sure all services that children are in contact with -- from the moment they're born to the moment they enter the job market -- are in communication with each other with the goal to improve student achievement. 

Enter Cynthia Nelson Holmsky, a Monterey resident who has just been hired as director of the Monterey County Cradle to Career Partnership.

The Monterey County Cradle to Career partnership will be based on a model adopted by more than 100 communities across the country that share practices through the Cradle to Career Network.

Cradle to Career Network communities promote a broad commitment among social service, education, business and philanthropic agencies to work together to achieve agreed-upon goals for student success.

Since the first Cradle to Career partnership began in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky in 2006, communities in 37 states and the District of Columbia have established programs.

I'll be talking to Holmsky in the next upcoming weeks about the partnership, so if you have a burning question for her, ask away and I'll pass it along.
