Since the spring of 2012, ETV has partnered with Lexington 4 through a project funded by the Knight Foundation Fund of the Central Carolina Community Foundation.

ETV’s mascot, Smart Cat, has championed the Lexington 4 literacy effort with parent and community groups, and the project provided 40 scholarships for the Lexington 4 Early Childhood Center staff and selected civic and congregational groups to participate in PBS
