“I included Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers in my estate plan because providing caring, fun education for children during this critical stage of brain development is one of the most important gifts one can give.”
–Dr. Margaret Baker Rennels, Pediatrician

Past Board member Robert Reynolds, who died in 2014, included Critchlow in his will. “Bob felt very strongly about education, and it does start with the young children,” said his wife Phoebe Reynolds. “Bob believed a good foundation gives children a great start as they get older.”
