Dr. Peggy Hibbert

The Peggy Hibbert Enlightenment Speaker Series is a series of educational events created in honor of Dr. Peggy Hibbert.  Peggy Hibbert was devoted to the mission of supporting families with young children.  Her passion for early education and early intervention is reflected in her many years of involvement at Project Enlightenment as a parent, a doctoral student intern, and eventually as the staff coordinator of the Demonstration Preschool. Her vision and willingness to step forward as the first volunteer President led to the creation of the Project Enlightenment Foundation.  She helped establish the first Board of Directors for the Foundation and set forth the goals and mission of the Foundation.  Donations made in her memory help us continue her mission of education through the Peggy Hibbert Enlightenment Speaker Series.
