At the meeting of 7/23/14, Project Second Chance director Laura Seaholm, joined by assistant direct Megan Brown and Project Second Chance Alumni Danny Watts gave us an update on this great adult literacy program.

Mr. Watts came to the program two years ago.  His goals were simple; he wanted to read a book to his grandchild and, ultimately, wanted to give back to those who could not read.  As he put it, “He wanted to be part of the solution.”

Ms. Seahold mentioned that there are 190 adults enrolled in Project Second Chance, served by 130 volunteer mentors, who work with the participants for a minimum of one year.  Our own Nancy Glenfield has volunteered with the program for many years.
