What a night! Two hundred and thirty guest reservations were made for this year’s AACLC Appreciation Dinner, graciously hosted by Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church in Severna Park.

Following a delicious buffet dinner, inspirational speakers Ray Williams (current student) and Deena Fujimoto (current tutor and math workshop instructor) held the rapt attention of the audience, followed by the awarding of student character certificates. Each tutor nominated their student for one of 6 certificates, based on specific character strengths they had observed in their students during the course of their tutoring. Student Coordinator JoAnn Cook created these beautiful student certificates, which will hopefully be lifelong keepsakes for the students.

Capital Gazette journalist Sharon Lee Tegler covered the evening live and captured key moments in her weekly column Around The Park: Anne Arundel County Literacy Council dinner celebrates tutors, students:
