Welcoming Jackie Luzum to the St. Matthew Early Childhood Center

I am very pleased to announce that Jackie Luzum has accepted the position as the Director of the St. Matthew Early Childhood Center (ECC). Ms. Luzum will begin her duties on Monday, September 30th.

Jackie will be leading the St. Matthew Early Childhood Center by recruiting, hiring and evaluating the St. Matthew child care personnel, monitoring and enforcing DHS and other federal, state and local regulations, overseeing the Jaguar Xtension program, and serving as primary supervisor of the ECC budget, in addition to handling many other tasks.

Ms. Luzum joins the St. Matthew Early Childhood Center with more than 20 years experience in the early childhood field, with many of these years spent in the role of manager or director. She brings experience and a proven track record of success in the early childhood area, which will be invaluable in meeting the St. Matthew Early Childhood Center goals and objectives. She holds both an Associates and Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with an added emphasis on business.

I am confident Jackie will be an excellent match for this position and a strong asset to the St. Matthew Early Childhood Center and our entire School and Church community. Jackie can be reached at 319-363-9309 or jluzum@stmatthewcr.org starting Monday, September 30th.
