DEBORAH THE EDUCATOR: Debbie’s goal was to have a child care center that was an extension of her family, and in 1979 her dream came to fruition. She along with her family began the Porters Day Care and Educational Center. This work continues today with over two hundred children receiving quality care at a four star nationally accredited educational center. The program evolved to include Broad Street Academy, Head Start, Pre-K Counts, Infants & Toddlers and a Latch key after school program for grades K through 5.

Debbie’s love for education encouraged the family to create their annual scholarship fund, “The Evelyn & Sultan Porter Scholarship” to assist youth striving to enter college. Over 100 youth have been blessed over the years by these scholarships since it’s inception. Over the years, Debbie has received many awards and recognitions for the quality care provided by Porter’s Day Care & Educational Center.
