NORWICH – Opportunities for Chenango’s Literacy Volunteers gathered at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Norwich for the agency’s annual ceremonial dinner Thursday night to recognize the hard work, dedication and accomplishments of its students, and pay homage to its volunteers.
“This is always a great time for the students and the volunteers in the program and a time when we can recognize all they do,” said Literacy Volunteers of Chenango County Director Laurie Jerome. Students in particular were lauded for showing that hard work pays off. “We’re really proud to have their progress recognized and to have them recognize their own personal goals,” Jerome added. “The goals that we have inside – the goals we set as people – they’re the ones that count.”
