Cape Cod Child Development has added Judy Connors Tarver, a retired early childhood educator and administrator; attorney John Kenney; and David Willard, retired Vice President of Community Relations at Cape Cod Five to its board of directors.

Tarver, a volunteer of CCCD for the past five years, comes to the Board of Directors with decades of Early Childhood Education experience which includes: First and Second Grade Teacher at the Auburn Enlarged City School District and the Education Director at the John Gavras Center in association with the United Cerebral Palsy Association in Auburn, New York.

The CCCD board also recruited a highly respected Attorney and community leader with the appointment of John Kenney to the Board of Directors. Kenney runs his own law firm right in Centerville, Massachusetts and is a key member of the local community, with memberships and affiliations with both the Barnstable County Bar Association and the Greater Hyannis Chamber of Commerce.

Most notably, he served for nearly 20 years as the Vice President of Community Relations at Cape Cod Five. His other charitable and community board service has included the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, Community Development Partnership and the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce.

“We are so fortunate to have these new board members with us to continue to shape CCCDP to be the best child care agency we can be, in service to the thousands of children whose lives have been touched over the years” said Kris Dower, Chief Executive Officer of CCCDP.

“They understand the value of CCCDP and treasure the mission and vision of taking care of Cape Cod’s children and families.”
