Last month, nearly a year after the Community Children’s Center lost its director, the local preschool and daycare hired Rebecca Lowry as its new executive director.

A teacher at the Yellow Springs Community Children’s Center said this week that YSCC Director Marlin Newell was fired by the board of trustees on Monday, Aug. 18. Newell had been on vacation, teacher EJ Waskiewicz said, when two board members asked her to sign a termination letter. Newell asked that Waskiewicz act as a witness to the event.
Marlin Newell has been at the Yellow Springs Community Children’s Center for long enough that the toddlers she potty-trained and taught to walk are now returning to enroll their own children.
Today’s blog showcases the Mud Day at the Children Community Center on Friday.
