Providing Valuable EDUCATIONAL Resources is an IMPORTANT Mission for Smoky Hills PBS....
On Screen and off Screen!
"Studies show the more books a child owns, the more likely they are to do well at school! We are grateful to our friends at Smoky Hills Public Television for donating books to our Headstart Program"
~ Heartland Early Education of Salina
Through the funding of our Foundation Partners (listed below), we are able to distribute books each year to Head Start and other early education programs across Central and Western Kansas. Encouraging a love of reading at a young age is an important aspect of educational development and we are excited to be able to do this year after year!
