Governor Pence appoints Early Learning Advisory Committee

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today named appointees to the Early Learning Advisory Committee.

“I am pleased that these experts in early learning have agreed to serve on this committee and will be taking a comprehensive look at the quality and availability of early childhood programs in Indiana,” said Governor Mike Pence. “I look forward to their assessment of the opportunities and challenges Indiana faces in early education, and to their recommendations.”

Kevin Bain, of Evansville, will serve as Chairman of the Early Learning Advisory Committee. Currently, he serves as Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Welborn Baptist Foundation, which provides grants to not-for-profit organizations that significantly contribute to community health in a fourteen-county area of Southeastern Illinois, Southwestern Indiana, and Western Kentucky. Prior to joining the Foundation in 2008, Bain spent 25 years with various divisions of Bristol-Myers Squibb. Bain is the Founder of the Southwestern Indiana Business Leaders Roundtable on Early Education and is Chairman of the Board for Early Childhood Development Coalition. He earned his undergraduate degree from Hanover College and his graduate degree from the University of Chicago.

Appointed to the Committee, Alonzo Weems currently holds the position of Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, Bio-Medicines Business Unit and General Counsel for Lilly USA, LLC. Prior to assuming this role in the beginning of 2013, Weems served as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Eli Lilly Canada. He is the past co-chair of the Success by Six Leadership Council, an early childhood education partnership led by the United Way of Central Indiana. Weems earned his undergraduate degree from Wabash College and his law degree from Indiana University School of Law.

Tammy Veselsky, Early Childhood Principal of Traders Point Christian Academy (TPCA), has been named to the Committee. Employed by TPCA for 23 years, Veselsky began as a pre-kindergarten teacher and later took on an administrative role. Before joining TPCA, she worked at a daycare at Southport Heights Christian Church. Veselsky earned her undergraduate degree from Lincoln Christian University.
