LtoR: Diana Patrick, DC PTO VP and Kathy Cornish, Administrator in Reading Award with Karen Robinson, President

Officers of the SEARK Reading Council attended the Arkansas Literacy Association’s Council Leadership Institute July 19-20, 2019, at the Heritage Conference Center on the campus of Harding University. The officers attending were Karen Robinson, President and Latanza Atkins, Vice-President.

Approximately 50 local reading council leaders from across Arkansas attended the workshop. Sessions focused on program promotion, leadership skill training, networking, and local literacy projects. A Celebrate Literacy Luncheon was held on Friday where ARA award and grant winners from across the state were presented with their awards. SEARK Reading Council had two local winners win ALA state awards.  Drew Central PTO won the state Agency Award in Literacy and Kathy Cornish, principal at Warren Middle School, was awarded the state Administrator in Reading Award.  On Friday afternoon, in addition to sharing her latest books, Arkansas author Darcy Pattison discussed the process of writing and how she gathers ideas for her books.

The Arkansas Literacy Association has approximately 1000 members dedicated to actively supporting literacy learning throughout the state. ALA is an affiliate of the International Literacy Association. Twelve local councils throughout the state support area educators, students, parents, and families through local programs and special projects.   ALA hosts an annual professional development conference in November in Little Rock.  This year the conference will be held at The Vines Center on November 14-15, 2019.

The Institute was organized by ALA Chair, Deborah McMillan, Arkadelphia, and Jeanne Trawick, Conway, who serves as the International Literacy Association State Coordinator.

Anyone interested in attending the state literacy conference or in joining a local council should contact ALA Director of Membership, Kacy Barden at kacy@alaliteracy.org or visit www.alaliteracy.org.

The first meeting of SEARK Reading Council will be held September 30, 2019 at Drew Central Middle School Library at 6 pm.
