Council Honored for Service in Education and Humanities

The Artists Music Guild (AMG) was established to advance the contributions of the arts to American culture. This year, the AMG honors the Literacy Council with service award nominations in the categories of Education and Humanities. The AMG Heritage Music Awards ceremony will be held Saturday, November 15, at the Union County Agricultural and Conference Center in Monroe. Buy your ticket today (before the awards show sells out!) to see Dee Dee Sharpe, Gloria Gaynor, Chubby Checker, Shirley Caesar and other living legends perform.

“This year we are extending our mission to include family literacy. Therefore, our tutors and volunteers encourage children's learning and teach adults how to navigate through their daily commitments in school, at work, at home and in the community. Advocating the importance of reading is essential to building strong families and communities, and we thank AMG for this opportunity to share the joy of reading with us.” Board Chair Helen Kimbrough

Make a Difference

Our mission is to improve the quality of life in our community and expand individual potential by teaching adults and families to read, write, speak, and understand the English language.

Our adult students want to confidently read to gather information for daily life. Some were born locally; some migrated here. All are motivated to learn so that they can collaborate with co-workers, engage in their children’s school activities and be better informed on health and finance issues.

We invite you to tutor or assist students in our computer lab. Encourage others to volunteer. Refer students. Join the Hive at the 2014 Adult S-p-e-l-l-i-n-g Bee this November. Make a charitable donation. All of these actions improve students' lives and sustain our community.

Thank you!
