Literacy Project Receives Glowing Review

The Rockingham County Literacy Project, located in Eden, received an excellent review from its monitoring team from the North Carolina Community College System.  According to Alan Tucker, Director of Program Quality and Accountability, College and Career Readiness Division, the program “met all the required program practices for the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA).” 

Mr. Tucker further states that the RC Literacy Project is “a solid community-based organization with tremendous community support.  It is characterized by a progressive approach to working with students at the lowest literacy levels.”

Among the commendations for the RC Literacy Project were those for its “use of resources to provide a website and technology use to the students and instructors/tutors” and its partnership with Rockingham Community College.

Literacy Project Executive Director Jean Light Kinyon says, “We knew the RCLP was a great literacy program all along, but it is very exciting for this to be recognized by our NC Community College System administrators!”

The RC Literacy Project offers one-on-one or small-group instruction to the adults of Rockingham County who need and want instruction in the areas of reading, writing, math, preparation for the GED Tests, and English as a Second Language/Civics (preparation for the US citizenship interview).  For additional information, contact Jean Light Kinyon at 336.627.0007 or jkinyon@rcliteracyproject.org.
