Rotary Recap - 9/29/2021 - Trident Literacy - JoAnn Sherman

Evan Murray told his story of his short-but-illustrious career at the Citadel and military deployment, which included a stint in Korea. He returned to the US and started working at Daniel Island Real Estate earlier this year. Encouraged by Sally Castengera and Angela, he joined the RCDI, where he has already been named Young Rotarian of the year.

Claire Law, the President of the Daniel Island Toastmasters, gave a beautiful representation of what-they do and the benefits thereof.

Mary Schroeder gave a big shout-out to all those that made Hurricane Ida and Run for Bernie such a success.

Don't forget your Polio t-shirts next week and sign-up for next month’s Chile Cookoff.

JoAnn Sherman described the work of Trident Literacy, which is now transitioning back from virtual to in-person for those vaccinated. Trident Literacy was founded in 1972 using a shoebox of index cards to keep track of the students and their tutors. Today it is a well-respected, leading agency for adult education with the goal of reversing the cycle of generational poverty and illiteracy through the acquisition of vital life skills. Its programs include basic literacy, a GED-prep course, career readiness, English as a second language, and classes on family literacy and parenting skills.TL teaches both reading comprehension as well as basic math to students many of whom go on to work, school at Trident Tech or the military.
