Children and teachers in Room 7 are celebrating. On Friday, January 27, a group of 3- to 5-year-olds will welcome The Luminous Fund, which is adopting the classroom with a $3,000 grant in support of room improvements, sliding scale tuition, and professional development. Unveiling the dedication plaque and sharing breakfast with the preschoolers will be Kathy Carrier, Foundation Secretary and President of Briljent. The celebration is set for 9:30 am, at Early Childhood Alliance’s Downtown Learning Center (516 E Wayne St).
“My husband and I established it [The Luminous Fund] in 2016 to continue to build a foundation of service within our family and our business,” said Carrier. “We are proud of our success and what we are able to do to serve others.” Through this foundation, the Carrier and Odum families make significant donations in the communities in which Briljent operates.
