For the second consecutive year, Lanier Technical College and its partners in adult education are being recognized at the state level.
In November, the college and adult literacy programs from its eight-county service area, will receive the 2010 SDA Literacy Awareness campaign award from the Technical College System of Georgia.
“Your excitement about adult literacy and your commitment to improving the quality of life for Georgians is significant and an inspiration for others to follow,” said Josephine Reed-Taylor, deputy commissioner for the Technical College System of Georgia, in a released statement.
The award is given annually in recognition of the visibility adult learning programs receive in the communities.
Kathy Davis, director of the Dawson County Adult Learning Center, said the community shares the award.
“For two years in a row, we’ve gotten it and I have to think that’s from enthusiasm and support for the program and the support of communities to get the word out about adult literacy and the need for it,” she said.
