Shelton is Vice Chancellor of Research and Engagement and the Carol Jenkins Mattocks Distinguished Professor.

This project will increase school readiness and success by improving the quality of the early education and care experiences for infants and young children, the abstract notes. More specifically, Bringing Out the Best (BOB) builds the capacity of early education and care providers, Pre-K teachers, directors/administrators and families to reduce behavioral challenges and support social and emotional development through evidence-based prevention and intervention services. In summary, the impact of this project will be to intervene early to support children who will be ready for school and ready for life. BOB continues to play an important role in advancing the mission of the Guilford County Partnership for Children to support, educate, connect and advocate through the services it provides for children, early educators and families. BOB fulfills a critical need to provide services where no comparable services exist.
