Graduate Students Lead Teams with Buffalo Bills/KaBoom! Playground Project
Baker Victory Services / ChildPro was selected to receive a grant from the Buffalo Bills and KaBOOM! to build a state-of-the-art community playground for children in their Early Childhood Program. Two of Hilbert College’s master of public administration students, Jeremy Schlosser and Zsofia Parragh, will each be leading their own project teams in the construction of the playground.
The multi-agency collaboration also involves the United Way, Play 60 Challenge, and the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council, Inc. The playground build project managers, Dr. Walter and Mary Iwanenko, who also secured the grant with the help of United Way, were invited to help make the official announcement with the Buffalo Bills at the 12th annual Buffalo Bills Kid’s Day on August 25.
The OLV playground will be the first built by KaBOOM! and the Buffalo Bills, and is just one of more than 150 playground builds KaBOOM! will lead across the country in 2012 in an effort to provide kids with a great place to play.
