64 - CAPE GAZE'IWE, Friday, July 14 - July 20, 2000 Business education partnership benefits Sussex families High-quality, affordable child care is easier for working parents to obtain, thanks to a community partnership between Greenwood Trust and Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus. Scholarships for the campus Child Development Center (CDC), subsidized by a $210,000 grant from the bank to the col- lege, enable children of qualified Owens Campus students to re- ceive care while their parents at- tend classes. According to a report from the Children's Defense Fund, the quality of child care has a lasting impact on children's well-being and ability to learn. Child care and early education are critical to the success of two national priorities: helping fami- lies work and ensuring that every child enters school ready to suc- ceed. The Owens Campus CDC plays a vital part in meeting the needs of area children and their fami- lies. During a recent visit, Green- wood Trust President J.
