Sen. Breen named Legislator of the Year by MAAP
AUGUSTA – Sen. Cathy Breen, D-Falmouth, received the Legislator of the Year Award from the Maine Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics at their Spring Conference on April 30.
In 2015 Sen. Breen was a leader in establishing a study on the social and emotional learning and development of Maine’s young children – work that led the Maine Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics to recognize her today. Given her expertise in this area, she also led a breakout session on this topic at the conference.
“Supporting the social and emotional learning and development of our youngest Mainers sets them up for future successes,” said Sen. Breen. “There’s too much at stake in Maine’s future to let anyone slip through the cracks.”
