From Illiterate to Poet

We just can’t stop bragging about Earl Mills. He came to Craven Literacy Council at age 48 and through diligent work with our tutors learned to read. He’s been on stage with former first lady Barbara Bush. He’s been a speaker at ProLiteracy events. He’s had several books  published.

Read here about Earl’s most recently published work.

New Leader at the Helm

Sandra McKinney, Executive DirectorWelcome, Sandra McKinney, the new  Executive Director of Craven Literacy Council.

It was hard saying good-bye to Donna Marshall, an 8-year veteran, who has led CLC  for the past 4 years. But it is exciting to look forward, too.

The Board of Directors has tapped a proven community leader in their hiring of Sandra McKinney as Executive Director. She brings an extensive background in administration in the nonprofit sector and a record of success in getting initiatives off the ground and flourishing. In particular, Sandra has experience with the development and implementation of special events to raise funds, increase community awareness, and identify partnership opportunities and nourish those relationships.

Stop by our office to say “hello” and join us in welcoming Sandra to Craven Literacy.
