The Rowan County Literacy Council has just completed a Laubach workshop for new tutors. The workshop was conducted by trainers Clyde Harriss, Phyllis Martin, Carolyn Myers and Helen Peacock.
The training is for non-professional people who would like to help others improve their reading skills or teach English as a Second Language to foreign-born residents.
Tutors completing the course were Mindy Corriher, Donald Doering, Jennifer Doering, Leslie Hayes, Donna Rowland and Anne Waller.
The Literacy Council offers tutoring services to any adult 16 or older. Anyone wanting to register for the next workshop or to receive tutoring help should call the Literacy Office at 704-216-8266.
