RICHMOND, Va. — A Virginia couple is giving $1 million to help improve early childhood education in the Old Dominion.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office announced Tuesday that Ben and Betty Davenport's gift would establish a new institute that would partner with four state community colleges.
Those colleges are Danville, Patrick Henry, Virginia Western and New River.
The goal of the $1 million is to help better train childcare workers and provide coaching and professional development opportunities.
