Sallie Westheimer Community Impact Award

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Champions for Children Celebration in 2016, 4C presented the first Sallie Westheimer Community Impact Award at the January 2016 gala. The occasional award memorializes the lasting impact that retired 4C President/CEO Sallie Westheimer has had on our community.

2016 Honorees

John Pepper and James Zimmerman, retired CEOs of Procter & Gamble and Macy’s respectively, are the first recipients of this award. They are being honored for their lobbying efforts with business leaders and government officials on the importance of quality early childhood education—especially during the two years before kindergarten. Their efforts have created a sea change over the past decade in the way our community talks and thinks about quality early childhood education.
