When Ginger West’s daughter was enrolled in Early Head Start, she took every opportunity to voice the needs of parents in the program and volunteered non-stop. Although her child has since graduated she continues to give of herself. Ginger is on state and local boards that support early childhood education and the role of parents. She also volunteers as a grant reader for the Utah Center for Disabilities. She has spearheaded multiple fund raising activities that support early childhood education. Ginger is married to John West and is a mother to John, 15, Jacqui, 5, and Cambria, 4.
