Overseeing The BL Area Child Care Center

When talking about the vision and creation of the Battle Lake Area Child Care Center it is common to bring up the name of the late Mike Henkenius. As the Battle Lake Director of Economic Development, he jumpstarted the child care center idea and moved it forward. That is especially true when we look at who serves on the child care center board of directors. Henkenius hand-picked his team from a population rich with talent. He wanted a connection with schools and a diversity of age and ability. He would need a mix of personalities and backgrounds, work experience and education, wisdom and enthusiasm.
