5e2b0301-e61e-41ee-90d1-919ea79236dbWe are deeply saddened by the news of Professor Leah D. Adams’ passing. Professor Adams, age 81, died peacefully Saturday, February 1, of complications from chemotherapy. Tim, her loving husband of nearly 60 years, was by her side as well as her four children and one of her ten grandchildren.

Professor Adams was a veracious contributor to the field of education. She was a former president of OMEP-USA and Regional Vice President North America and the Caribbean. Her full curriculum vitae, listing her numerous publications, presentations, consultancies, professional organization activities, honors and awards, is more than 20 pages. She received the Lifetime Achievement award from the Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children for her leadership at the state level. Professor Adams was perhaps best known for her international activities and had given major speeches in 38 countries on six continents. She served as president of the National Association for Early Childhood Teacher Educators, as a consultant to UNESCO and USAID and had five work assignments in the Middle East. In 2006, she was selected as a Fulbright Senior Specialist from the Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board to lead a project in South Korea.

Professor Adams was a dedicated executive committee member for advocating the well-being of young children and a leader at OMEP. Our organization would never be the same without her contribution and dedication.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Zion Lutheran Church 1501 W. Liberty Ann Arbor at 10:30 am on Friday, February 14. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Leah D. Adams endowment at EMU Foundation 1349 S. Huron Ypsilanti MI 48197.

NGO COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION, NGO COMMITTEE ON CHILDREN’S RIGHTS, NGO COMMITTEE ON MIGRATION, PSYCHOLOGY COALITION AT THE UN, and WORLD ORGANISATION FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Invite you to a Side Event during the 52nd Session of the Commission on Social Development

“REFUGEE CHILDREN AND THE RIGHT TO EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION:
A HUMANITARIAN AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ISSUE”

In the first five years, psychosocial well-being is as important as physical health. However, the large number of the world’s children that start life at severe risk threatens the global goals of poverty eradication, sustainable development and social stability. Many refugee children do not have access to education, let alone to quality education, key to sustainable development in the post-2015 framework. Early childhood education mitigates the psychosocial impact of conflict and disasters by giving a sense of routine, stability, structure, and hope for the future. Refugee children too have the right to thrive, develop their full potential, and contribute to society.
