The Literacy Council announced the success of their first online “A Call to Auction: A Celebration of Literacy” held the week of May 17th-21st. The event raised over $12,000 to support adult literacy education programs in Fort Bend County.

“We sincerely appreciate the support for adult literacy education programs,” said Terri Stuart, Executive Director. “We are seeing an ever-increasing demand for English as a Second Language classes, US Citizenship tutoring and High School Equivalency classes to prepare adults to take the GED Exam. Fort Bend County’s generous support helps ensure we continue to meet this demand to empower adults to improve their lives through education.”

This year’s virtual auction was co-chaired by Helen Bow, Camille Brewer and Fallon Moody. Proceeds continue to support the mission of the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County to improve family, community and professional lives through adult literacy education.

The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County continues to recruit volunteer tutors. Student registration for Fall 2021 classes begins August 2nd. Programs are open to any adult who is ready to take charge of their future and embrace new opportunities available through education.
