Pre-K Initiative

During his 2005 inaugural address, Mayor Walt Maddox established the core belief that all academically at-risk four-year- old children deserve a highly effective pre-k education.

Within weeks, Maddox and the City Council established the Pre-K Task Force representing stakeholders from across the community to investigate the feasibility of turn this belief into reality. The Task Force evolved into the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative and now serves more than 250 at-risk preschool students.

Message From The Mayor

Since the inaugural Mayor’s Cup in 2007, we've raised an astounding $211,000 to provide resources for at-risk preschoolers throughout the Tuscaloosa area.

The Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative, which focuses on 21 pre-k classrooms and more than 250 preschool students, is important to the educational growth in our community. Pre-k students are not only more prepared for kindergarten, but they also have higher rates of success throughout school. This gives at-risk children a base for a successful scholastic career.

The Mayor's Cup is a simple, fun way for the entire community to get together and to get involved in supporting education. With over a 1,500 participants last year, we are making a difference with every stride we take.

Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to seeing you at the 11th annual Mayor's Cup on April 29.
