Director of Project Family Comprehensive Child Development Program
Arkansas Children's Hospital
Loretta AlexanderA year in Nairobi, Kenya, on a post-graduate fellowship in 1986 reminded Loretta Alexander of what was needed back home. And though her early career was devoted to clinical pathology, she wanted to take a hands-on approach to helping the needy.
"It really broadened my perspective in life," says the 39-year-old who grew up in McGehee. "I feel very strongly that even though I could probably live and work anywhere and do many other things, charity begins at home. I am very committed to enhancing and upgrading the quality of life here."
Project Family, a grant from Head Start, provides services that start with the child and cover the family.
Alexander was recently selected as a finalist for the national Head Start Fellowship.
Alexander graduated from the Greater Little Rock Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class X in 1995. She's a volunteer with the Arkansas Council for International Visitors, serves on the Ryan White Center board and is a member of the Future-Little Rock Governance Task Force.
