More than seventy happy faces celebrated the many accomplishments of all of Literacy Outreach’s students and volunteers.

A delighted Sandra Cano was selected student of the year using every opportunity to study English.  She is a steady participant in Mom’s Circle at the Glenwood Library and she also meets weekly with her tutor.  All students received certificates of participation.

Hugh Warder was selected “Tutor of the Year” for his willingness to help whenever needed.  Hugh has tutored multiple students, assisted with student assessments and has served on our board of directors. All volunteers received certificates of appreciation and pins for every 100 hours of service.

This year’s event was held for the first time at the beautiful new Rifle Branch Library.  A private viewing of Discover Earth was given for all attendees.  The Rifle Branch Library was 1 of only 10 libraries in the country to host this museum qulaity exhibit all about the earth.  Attendees were invited to explore the artifacts, information panels and interactive stations.  This also included a photo exhibit by photographer Peter McBride and autor Jonathan Waterman on “The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict.”
