Craven Literacy Council celebrated National Literacy Month with a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on September 13, 2016. CLC has approximately 125 active tutors and other volunteers who are the heart of the organization. These volunteers gave almost 13,000 hours to the organization last fiscal year. They worked with students who needed help with reading, writing, speaking, technology, achieving citizenship, getting a drivers’ license, reading prescription labels, completing job applications and other forms, as well as helping with fundraisers, training new tutors, and raising awareness of adult literacy in our community.
Janet Peregoy was named the Volunteer of the Year for her outstanding service and advocacy of adult literacy in our community. Four individuals: JoAnn Kerrick, Debi Lupia, Dorothea Neely and Mary Spooner were recognized for their induction into the Grand Club for achieving 1000 lifetime volunteer hours with Craven Literacy Council.
