February 16, 2015
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union’s Continued Learning Program (CLP) scheduled for Tuesday, February 24 will feature Carol Lichtenwalter, executive director of Pegasus Farm, at 10 a.m. in the East Room of the Hoover Price Campus Center. Lichtenwalter will discuss what is new at Pegasus Farm.
Prior to joining Pegasus Farm, Lichtenwalter worked for 20 years as Director of the Stark County Family Council where she and her staff managed a comprehensive, countywide wrap-around program for children with complex needs as well as a home visiting program for families who have children birth to three years of age known as Help Me Grow. In addition, Lichtenwalter supported the Council’s collaborative, cross-system efforts to implement strategies and services that promote school/community partnership, family advocacy and support and the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Prior to that, Lichtenwalter worked with The Arc of Stark County, a non-profit organization that provides support for people with developmental disabilities and their families. She has also worked as a parent coordinator for the Family Information Network, a program funded by the Ohio Department of Health to work with families who receive early intervention services in a nine county region. Because of her experiences raising a child with special needs, Lichtenwalter has a strong commitment to supporting families and promoting community-based opportunities for individuals who have developmental delay.
Continued Learning Program Sessions offer a variety of presentations and topics to the public, as well as time for questions and discussion. Sessions are free and take place at 10 a.m. each week. Following the sessions, the public is welcome to stay for lunch at the Kresge Dinning Commons ($6.75) or the B&B Café (a la carte).
