Have you volunteered for your Reading Seed time yet? Maybe asked some friends to do the same? If not, it’s probably because you need to know more about how this mutual program of Rotary and Literacy Connects works. Now is the time to learn how volunteers are literally changing the trajectory of children’s lives.
Betty has been the Executive Director of Literacy Connects since it was formed on July 1, 2011. Before that she was the Executive Director of Literacy Volunteers of Tucson since June 2002. Literacy Connects was formed when five well-established literacy organizations in Southern Arizona merged to create one innovative organization.
Betty has lived in Tucson since 2000 before which she lived in Cleveland, Ohio. She is a social worker and was the Executive Director of a transitional housing program for homeless families for 10 years in Cleveland. She loves working in literacy because it is addressing one of the root causes of homelessness and poverty both of which have been her professional focus for more than 25 years.
Betty is the mother of two grown children and the proud grandmother of three wonderful boys.
