Recognizing our Best ~ Central Awards Event
Open Doors Literacy Newsletter: Summer 2017
June 13, 2017, was Literacy Volunteers' Annual Awards Event, where learners and tutors received recognition for their exemplary work and the new Board of Directors was voted in. Following the theme of "What is Black & White & READ All Over?" the room was appropriately decorated in theme colors, including the dessert table, with a delicious array of black, white, and red pastries and desserts. In the center of each table, books with specially made black & white covers were arranged, each representing a novel read by one of our learners or tutors.
Literacy Specialist Diane Moseley led the evening by presenting awards to tutors and learners who had shown special growth during the year. Top honors went to The CONVERSATION CLASSES, led by Barbara Robertson and Lynn Bryant. While both Barbara and Lynn give kudos to their learners, we commend the efforts of these two who have given so much to their classes, which have become a vibrant hub of activity and learning.
The honorable Mayor of Huntington Beach, Barbara Delgleize, joined us for the entire evening, offering to present the awards. We are grateful to our city's #1 citizen for honoring Literacy Volunteers and recognizing the work that we do. It was a thrill for all the winners to have their picture taken with Barbara, making the night even more special. READ MORE @
