Gift of Literacy

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Through a matching grant from Rotary District 6560, the Rotary Club of Greencastle recently made a $5,000 donation to the Reading Improvement Center. Club members Nancy Michael, left, and President David English, right, made the check presentation to Ellen Ditmer of the Center. From humble beginnings 25 years ago, the Center has grown to a staff of 40 DePauw University students tutoring approximately 50 students each year. Ditmer said the Center's leadership would like to reach more children and is trying to expand its base. She hopes the center will be able to work with more people from the community to fill the gaps that DePauw students cannot provide.
