Our thanks also go out to Robin Caudell and Dr. Jean Ann Hunt for the writing workshops they each facilitated for our students in April and May of this year.

And many thanks to our media sponsor, North Country Public Radio, and to our partners in the project: Maria Burke, director of Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin, and Nathalie Thill, director of Adirondack Center for Writing.

But our most special thanks go to our volunteer tutors and the wonderful adult students they work closely with throughout the year — whether born here in Clinton County and working to improve their reading and writing skills or born elsewhere (Algeria, Bhutan, Bosnia, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Peru, etc.) and working hard to learn our language and become part of our communities and citizens of our country.

Thank you from the Donah family.
