TAYLORSVILLE, N.C.­-Tomorrow, Friday, June 10, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams will hold a "Moving Up" ceremony for the preschool children graduating from its Lulu's Childhood Enrichment Center.

The daycare center is located at the furniture brand's headquarters in Taylorsville, N.C. In addition to a speech about education and early childhood development by North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue, the ceremony includes presenting diplomas to 12 cap-and-gown-clad preschoolers moving onto kindergarten in the fall.

"The Daycare Graduation Ceremony and College Scholarship Awards are always one of the proudest days of our lives, and we feel especially fortunate to have Governor Bev Perdue joining us this year," Mitchell Gold said. "One of our most important principles at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is to be family-centric and to play a meaningful role in the lives of our employees, their children and our community."

The company also will present college scholarships to 12 recipients of the 14th Annual Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams College Scholarship Program, which helps children of employees attend the four-year college of their choice.
