Dedicated to Literacy
Dozens of people here in Charlottesville, both young and old, credit Myra Spencer with helping them learn to read. Myra, age 82, is a volunteer with the Literacy Volunteers of America-Charlottesville/Albemarle. She tutors up to nine people at a time while providing assessments to incoming Literacy Volunteers with instructional information about their learner. Myra also works with children at Clark School through their Book Buddies program and with Bosnian and other non-native children through her association with the Blue Ridge ESL Council. Bravo to this outstanding woman! For more information about Literacy Volunteers of America call 977-3838.
