Joyce는 Washington 카운티 이사회의 Literacy Volunteers의 오랜 회원이었습니다. 그녀는 LVWC에 열정적이었고 항상 학생들을 돕고, 기금을 마련하고, 자원 봉사자를 모집할 수 있었습니다.

시작

이 모든 것은 2012년 Stonington 어부와 함께 시작되었습니다! James Arruda Henry 는 읽기와 쓰기를 배우기 시작한 90대 중반이었습니다. 문맹 퇴치 없이 성공적인 삶을 살았음에도 불구하고 James는 공부를 시작하여 그의 첫 번째 책인 In Fisherman's Language를 집필했습니다. 그의 삶은 헌신, 근면, 결단력의 힘이 모든 연령대의 사람을 재정의할 수 있음을 보여주었습니다. 진정한 LVWC의 사명입니다!
