Amy Moore is the director of the nonprofit’s Tracy-area efforts and the main source for my story.
Somehow, I got her last name completely wrong. I called Moore “Amy Brooks.”
The mistake wasn’t bad only because it shortchanged Moore. It’s a double mistake, since Amy Brooks happens to be a real person who is also deeply involved with local education.
Brooks, according to Tracy Unified Superintendent Jim Franco, is one of the administrators for the district. While I’m sure she’s doing a great job, she’s definitely not the head of the local Give Every Child a Chance chapters.
My sincere apologies to all involved.
However, there is some good news to share regarding GECAC. The Tracy Unified board gave its collective thumbs-up to let the program start a site at Jacobson School — the first Give Every Child foray into the Tracy Unified School District.
It’s our Great Call of the Week. What a state our city’s in
Wednesday’s State of the City address by Mayor Brent Ives covered a wide range of topics regarding Tracy’s future, but most prominent was the city’s economic development.
With any luck, I’ll get into the city’s economic future in next week’s column.
For thoughts on the rest, I’ll post a series of short columns on my blog at the Tracy Press Web site, More Second Thoughts.
