SRU gradate leads Canton's Early Childhood Resource Center
Scott Hasselman, a 1984 Slippery Rock University social work graduate, is the new executive director of the Early Childhood Resource Center in Canton, Ohio.
The Canton center provides educational programs, resources and support services to early childhood educators. Its mission is to improve the quality of early education and care in Stark County [Ohio] and to advocate at the state level.
"Scott is a highly energetic, values-driven leader with a demonstrated record of excellence in more than 25 years of experience in providing community-based programs to children and their families," said Sister Judith Ann Karam, Sisters of Charity Health Systems president and chief executive officer, in a statement to the Canton Repository. "That's why we are excited that he will be leading the ECRC forward in fulfilling its mission to improve the quality of early education and care in the Canton area, both of which are so important to children's future academic success."
Hasselman was vice president of Pressley Ridge, a multistate organization, and had previously been executive director of its Ohio and Maryland operations. His work included providing services to developmentally challenged children and their families.
In addition to his SRU degree, he earned a master's degree in education from California University of Pennsylvania. He is a board member of the Foster Family Treatment Association and serves as a peer reviewer on the Council of Accreditation.
