    Nagee ‘s work with and commitment to our children is part of his enduring legacy. I met Nagee several decades ago when he was a director of a Head Start Program in a challenged section of Chicago. His daily efforts and his consistent belief that adults had to take an active and forceful role in our children’s lives was legendary. Medasi, Nagee, for your fearless fight and productive life.
