Wilson Reads donates $2500 to Wilson County Adult Learning Center
Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Wilson Reads recently donated $2,500 to the Adult Learning Center. 

Wilson Reads is a non-profit organization whose main focus is to help eliminate adult illiteracy in Wilson County with the goal of helping people learn to read and earn their GED. Brian Abston, Vice Chairman for Wilson Reads states, “Reducing illiteracy will ultimately improve the quality of life for everyone in Wilson County by increasing the number of people who are fully functioning, productive contributors to the community.” 

Wilson Reads has partnered with the staff at The Adult Learning Center and are continually trying to create more public awareness to inform adults who cannot read that the opportunity exists to learn and get a GED at the ALC. 

The group is called The Open Book Society and the organization “Wilson Reads” helps provide grants and tutoring for students and helps provide marketing to get the word out to the community of the services provided by the ALC. 

The Open Book Society started with a group of Leadership Wilson graduates. They began the group in Leadership Wilson as a project and each member was so passionate about it that they decided to stay together, form a non-profit and keep it going. 

They are always seeking help to get the word out. If you would like more info on this group and how you can help please contact one of the members at: Brian Abston,  364-5147; Alesia Burnley,  337-6266; Terry Burns,  238-4448; Joni Cochran,  484-5921; Tina Winfree,  948-1769.
