November 14 marked the beginning of a new era in literacy cooperation between businesses and education in Las Cruces.  The Workforce Literacy Conference, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and NMSU's College of Education, brought community leaders together to discuss solutions to the need for workers with greater literacy skills.


Congratulations to Sheila McCaskill, our former Council Chair, for her nomination as New Mexico Coalition for Literacy's Board Member of the Year. Although she was not selected this year's recipient, Sheila did receive a Certificate of Commendation, signed by Heather Heunermund, Executive Director NMCL.

 

May 13 was the kickoff of our newest literacy partner, the Children's  Reading Foundation of DAC, a community-driven, county-wide project.  Their motto is "Read to a Child Every Day."  Welcoming speakers were Governor Martinez, Senator Fischmann, Foundation Director Terry Miller, county school superintendents, and representatives from NMSU, DACC, and City Council.

We look forward to working with the CRF as we share our mission of literacy!
