Student Joey Ruggiero, his family, and tutor Barbara Stern enjoying the Appreciation Dinner
On May 19th, 177 students, tutors, and guests enjoyed an evening of delicious food and fellowship while listening to an excellent presentation by County Executive Steve Schuh and the keyboard talents of musician Frank Harrison. A big highlight of the evening were the students who spoke about the difference learning to read has made in their lives.
