in Newport/News

NEWPORT — Yesterday, to kick off Orleans County Capitol for a Day, Governor Phil Scott took a tour of Ready Set Grow and Newport Head Start.

Meeting with staff members, touring the playground and even stopping to color for a bit with some of the children, Governor Scott and his team said they were impressed with the facility.

“The Newport Early Childhood Center shows us what’s possible when local partners come together and think outside the box to serve their community,” Gov. Scott shared on social media.

Scott started his visit to Orleans County with a cabinet meeting at the Northern Star at the Gateway Center, before heading to the Newport Early Childhood Center.

He then went our a tour of the Northern State Correctional Facility, before lunch at the Coventry Village School.
