Making a Move Students Take Active Role at MCLC
BY PAM GIAMBELLUCA
Special to The Pilot
The Moore County Literacy Council's students are more than clients.
They are members of our team of volunteers. The students are interested in giving back to the organization that has provided them with the skills they need to be successful.
In the past, students have helped plan the end of the year celebration, creating decorations, greeting guests and participating in the program.
Throughout the year, Ricardo and Antonia have acted as student liaisons and contacted students using their native language skills.
In September, Amanda assisted us in moving The Read Moore Center to our new space.
Last month Celeste and Ricardo helped to get our new space completed by painting and cleaning. Kim has worked in the office, and Greg has been an assistant discussion group leader for our English as a Second Language group. Most recently, Roberto translated some documents for us into Spanish.
When we had the official open house for our new location, Lupe delivered personal invitations to all the occupants of the Ice House Square.
Malinda brought in cookies she had baked. The day of the event, both Amanda and PJ acted as student tour guides.
On Dec. 3, a Holiday Fashion Show and Dessert Bar will be held as a fundraiser for the Moore County Literacy Council at the Old Buggy Inn in Carthage.
Three students - Amanda, Ivy and Celeste - will be models.
For more information about the fundraiser or to learn about volunteering as a tutor, call the Moore County Literacy council at (910) 692-5954 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can also be found at the website mcliteracy.com.
