Dr. Eileen Yantz, Board Chair, Partnership for
Children of Lincoln/Gaston Counties, Inc.

The Partnership for Children of Lincoln/Gaston Counties, Inc. (Partnership) mourns the passing of one of our own, Joyce C. Brison, a long time Gaston County childcare provider and tireless community advocate for Early Childhood Education.

Mrs. Brison operated the Ginger Bread House childcare center, after school program and summer camp for school age children for a combined 42 years, and she continued to advocate for children for many years following her retirement.

An early member of the Partnership’s board, Joyce collaborated with local and state agencies to raise awareness of children’s needs, and very seldom did she accept the answer “no” or “it cannot be done”.

Mrs. Brison’s commitment to the Partnership was instrumental in bringing Smart Start funding to the childcare community to support teacher education, increase compensation, improve program quality, and enhance indoor and outdoor classroom environments.

The Partnership recognizes and celebrates Joyce Brison's impact on young children in Lincoln and Gaston Counties and will continue to honor her legacy in the years to come.
