BENEFITING: THE LITERACY COUNCIL OF BUNCOMBE COUNTY
EVENT: 26th Annual Spelling Bee
EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2017
Every day, we are driven to improve lives in our community.
We believe that literacy changes lives for the better. In fact, we know it. Literacy and English language proficiency are tools that help people rise out of poverty and get better-paying jobs to support their families. Literacy allows parents to read to their children. Improved literacy skills benefit not only the struggling reader, but everyone in our community regardless of age, race, gender, or background.
We offer our students personal instruction and top rate materials. As a result, we improve our community, our economy and individual lives. We serve students in four core programs: Adult Education, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), the Augustine Project® and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. ®
