Literacy council makes a difference

The Victoria school district's You Make a Difference Award was presented to the Victoria Adult Literacy Council for the efforts to provide a second chance at education for many Victorians. The council is partnering with F.W. Gross Elementary School this year to offer on site classes for residents in the area. As many as 20 adults attend the classes to earn a GED, improve reading skills or improve their language skills. The council also offers extensive opportunities in the community for family literacy.
