Kyle Hubert (Parent Ambassador ) said “I created the IHSAparentconnect Slack as a means to bring the state together. I want every parent to know they have a community that supports their voice, and every director to know they have people who want to advocate for their programs. It doesn’t matter where you’re from. We’re a family; a Head Start family.”
