Connections Spotlight — CCC&Y presents special ‘Caring for Children Lifetime Achievement Award’ to Julianne E. Hartzell

| October 4, 2022

The Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth will present a special “Caring for Children Lifetime Achievement Award” to local educator Julianne E. Hartzell during its 50th Anniversary Celebration on Oct. 27.

“I just adore Julianne and I’m so excited to honor her in this way,” said Virginia Watahomigie, executive director of CCC&Y. “She has been so very giving with her time, not just to me personally but to the organization as a whole.

“The contributions Julianne has made, and continues to make, have had tremendous impact on the organization and the wider community. We are very fortunate to benefit from her knowledge and giving nature.”

Hartzell has volunteered her time to serve as a past board president for the Coalition, and currently serves on the group’s Action & Outreach Committee.

Each year, the Coalition honors a group of members of the community throughout Coconino County for promoting the well-being of children and families.

To celebrate the group’s 50th anniversary, the Coalition decided to create this special award.

Hartzell has long served youth in the region through various roles in the community, including as a long-time teacher in the Flagstaff Unified School District, a 12-year member of the FUSD Governing Board, as board member for CCC&Y, the FACT after-school program, the Flagstaff Community Foundation and the United Way of Northern Arizona.

Friends of ASBA Educating Arizona — Education Doomsday Countdown

Friends of ASBA Educating Arizona — Education Doomsday Countdown

| October 4, 2022

Today marks a significant step closer to education doomsday. There are less than 150 days left for the legislature to intervene and override the Aggregate Expenditure Limit (AEL). If the legislature fails to act by March 1, 2023, then district schools across Arizona will be forced to cut $1.3B statewide from their budget.

When the Legislature passed this year’s budget, it was a known fact that the money appropriated to K-12 education would exceed the Aggregate Expenditure Limit contained in the Arizona Constitution.

Help us make sure this issue remains top of mind and reshare our daily doomsday countdown clock posts on Facebook and Twitter or share your own post using the links below to tell us what  education doomsday means to your school community:

United Way of Northern Arizona — Strategic Plan for Northeast AZ Underway

United Way of Northern Arizona — Strategic Plan for Northeast AZ Underway

| September 20, 2022

United Way of Northern Arizona is in the process of developing a plan to bolster our work in northeastern Arizona and support our nonprofit partners in Navajo and Apache counties.
The strategic plan being developed is similar to a process we went through several years ago in the greater Flagstaff region, which allowed us to refocus our efforts on the most critical needs in Coconino County.

A special Task Force has been assembled for this project and is being led by Eric Scott, Human Resource and Risk Manager for Navajo County and a member of the UWNA Board.

The creation of this plan comes at a time when this economically challenged area (poverty rates range from 23% to 32%) is going through an important transition. Utilities in the area are moving from coal-based energy to renewables and natural gas, resulting in the closure of three power plants in the region
