The Legacy Child Development Center has opened it’s doors to our local little residents. The new owner Tammara Hannan is originally from a cattle ranch outside of New Underwood.  She went to high school in Sturgis and was a swimming instructor at an after school job.  This is where Tammara first thought of working with kids because she loved watching them grow and learn.  She went to College at SDSU and graduated with a BA in Human Development and Family Studies.   Tammara went on to Graduate from Erikson Institute in Chicago IL, with the intent of being a Child Development Specialist.  An unexpected turn of events placed her in Washington DC. Tammara married her soldier and worked at Walter Reed Child Development Center.  It was there that she fell in love with teaching and then later with the administrative side of early education.  10 years later Tammara is very excited to be back in SD, living on her parents ranch with her husband and two little boys while running her new business Legacy Child Development Center. “It is my mission that through Legacy CDC that I will be able to provide the children and families of Wall a high standard Child Care and Preschool that focuses on both the physical and developmental needs of all children.  I also strive for my business to be a positive addition to the Wall community though community events and sponsorship”, said Tammara.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

There are a lot of people across the region working to make their communities better for everyone. They know that sometimes to make things better you’ve got to change the way you get things done. “Change Network” is a unique learning experience for people in North Dakota and South Dakota who want to build the skills and connections that will help them become more effective leaders. This program designed for people who have the desire and potential to make positive changes where they work. Through the partners, “Change Network” offers cohort-style programs that equip participants to lead change in a more equitable and inclusive manner. Participants not only learn new skills, but also gain new allies who will support them in their work during the program and beyond.

The Executive Director of WEDC Liliya Stone was selected to participate in the South Dakota Change Network Fellowship, a program created by the Bush Foundation. Anyone, who wants to make a difference and become a strong leader, can apply for this program.

Moreover, Liliya was selected as one of the graduated students from Heartland Economic Development Course by Institute of Decision Making of University of Iowa to participate in the Heartland Board Meeting Student Debrief.
