This fall, BRLC was lucky to have Whipp and Lita join our amazing family of volunteers. They heard about BRLC from Pastor Greg Williams at Grace Lutheran Church and began volunteering this fall. Lita, a "second career" ESL teacher, began volunteering with our new Family Literacy program; Whipp, who was a high school history teacher, then began tutoring a citizenship group.
"The fundamental reason we joined is that we both believe in the mission of BRLC..." they said. "The adult learners in the BRLC program are an amazing group of people. So many of them are working hard to build a better life for themselves and their children!"
Originally Whipp and Lita had planned not to volunteer with the same organization. However, BRLC had two programs that spoke to their differing interests and backgrounds.
"We really like what we do - and love to talk about our different work over dinner. That's just another reason why this is such a good fit!"
Thank you, Whipp and Lita, for all you do!
