The Literacy Council of White County works to strengthen family literacy through educating adults and families by providing programs and the skills they need to reach their goals, both in their jobs and at home.
The Literacy Council of White County was founded in 1976, when it was staffed entirely by volunteers, and incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit in 1996.
Previously, LCWC has been part of Foothills Vo-Tech and the White County Regional Library System. Since 2005, it has been an independent entity with its own director and governing board.
We continue to develop the human capital of our community by offering individual tutoring and small -group classes ranging from basic adult education to a wide variety of literacy topics such as health, finances, parenting, dyslexia, workforce skills, and more.
We continue to further our mission thanks to the generosity of our community patrons.
Sarah has been involved in literacy education since 1998, first as an academic librarian at UCA, then as a public school teacher and dyslexia interventionist. She has taught Reading and English Language Arts at many grade levels, most recently in junior high. Her love of education has led her to complete an M.S in Information Science, an M.Ed. in Reading, an Ed.S. in Leadership. She is presently working toward an E.D.D. in Educational Leadership. Sarah jokes that education is both her job and her hobby. When not at the Literacy Council, Sarah enjoys reading, knitting, riding motorcycles & horses, and time with her husband and children on their homestead/hobby farm.
