The Rowan County Literacy Council has just completed a workshop for new tutors. The workshop was conducted by trainers Cindy DeLorenzo, Donna Hahn, Carolyn Myers and Helen Peacock.

The training is for non-professional people who would like to help others improve their reading skills or to teach English as a second language to foreign-born residents.

Tutors completing the course were Annette Brown, Thomas Long Jr., Frances Edwards, Timothy Elsner and Sherry Vechery of Smart Start Rowan.

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.

Rowan County Literacy Council is a United Way agency.
