SEARK Reading Council Hosts Celebrate Literacy Zoom Award Meeting

May 20th, 2020 by

libraryMembers of SEARK Reading Council nominated literacy leaders from Southeast Arkansas to be honored at this year’s Celebrate Literacy Banquet. Honorees then complete at the state level with other reading council’s honorees. The banquet was canceled because of the Covid-19 virus, so the winners were presented their awards during a Zoom meeting held on May 6, 2020. Karen Robinson, President, and Latanza Atkins, Vice President, presented awards to this year’s recipients. This year’s winners were Drew County Rotary Club for Agency in Literacy and Sara Daniell for Educator in Literacy.

For many years, the Monticello Rotary Club has been a dedicated supporter of literacy in Drew County. Their advocacy for literacy has been demonstrated through financial support, resources, and volunteerism. Monticello Rotary has purchased dictionaries and thesauruses for fourth graders at Drew Central Elementary. They have also donated to the Imagination Library, a non-profit organization that provides free books to children from birth until they start school.

Most importantly, the members of the Monticello Rotary Club sacrifice time out of their busy schedules to participate in “Leaders as Readers” at Drew Central Elementary. The members read books to fourth grade students and afterwards, lead the students in a discussion about their career choices. Students have met lawyers, bankers, real estate agents, professors, and insurance agents. We are very proud to have the Monticello Rotary Club as the 2020 SEARK Reading Council Agency in Literacy and accepting this honor was Ember Davis, President of the Rotary Club.

Sara Daniell’s love for literacy is evident in everything that she does. She is currently the Reading Interventionist for Warren Middle School. In addition to fulfilling her duties as an interventionist and classroom teacher, Sara has published seven novels and one children’s book. She hosts a summer reading camp and is one of the founding members of the Warren Reading Council. Sara is also the chairperson of the Young Writers Committee for SEARK Reading Council. We are proud to have this talented and devoted educator, Sara Daniell, as a member of SEARK Reading Council and the winner of the 2020 SEARK Reading Council Educator in Literacy Award.

SEARK Reading Council will meet again in September. If you are interested in becoming a member of SEARK Reading Council, visit arareading.org and click on the join tab to join online.
