Nine complete literacy training
The Rowan County Literacy Council has just completed a workshop for new tutors. The workshop was conducted by trainers Clyde Harriss, Phyllis Martin, Carolyn Myers, Helen Peacock and Rick Travis.
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: Georgia Adams, Marjorie Beaver, Mark Buskirk, Sherry Dillard, Carrol J. W. Fisher, Julie Ingold, Wendy Jackson, Timothy Okeke and Larry Summey.
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.
