We wanted to share this heartwarming note of thanks from a grateful student. It reminds us of a wonderful quote from B. B. King: “The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.”
“I’m writing this letter to thank you. After I went through a big change in my life, I couldn’t rely on working with my hands to take care of my family. When I went to the workmans comp court, they directed me to get help in reading. After court, I started looking for help and I came across the Anne Arundel Adult Literacy Council. After a few months, I hooked up with Mrs. Della Glenn. After two or three times meeting with Della and getting into our first book, I knew this was the best thing I could ever have done.
Over the next two years I have gotten so much better in reading and comprehension. My confidence in reading is two hundred percent improved. So I thank Della for being the best tutor for me, and give thanks to organizations and sponsors that help keep the door open for people like me. We need all the help we can get to make it through life.”
