We were extremely honored to be chosen as a Difference Maker for 2021. Literacy Action received a one thousand dollar donation as well as a beautiful trophy, all presented by Rainwater, Holt, and Sexton.
On Tuesday, Fox 16 came to the Little Rock office to film the award presentation and interview several members of the organization as well as one of our long-time students, Jonas Smith. Our board president Daveante Jones, Interim Director Dana Venhaus, Program Director Laura Latch, and Jonas all spoke on behalf of Literacy Action. The spot will air sometime next week, and will also be on the Fox 16 website. Exact air date and time forthcoming. Our hope is that this will help spread the word about Literacy Action and further our mission.
