Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Originally from Mexico, Mrs. Garcia-Fernandez came to Literacy Connections to improve her English language skills. As a program participant, she was partnered with tutor Debbie Brantham, a former librarian. As tutor and student bonded and time passed, Margarita made the decision to increase her education, as well as her employment opportunities. Once she felt comfortable that her English language ability would allow her to do well in a classroom, Mrs. Garcia-Fernandez decided to apply to Wayne Community College to start the process that would culminate with her being awarded her High School Equivalency. Not only was Margarita handed her High School Equivalency, she did so while her former tutor and friend Debbie Brantham watched and cheered her on from the crowd. Now that she has achieved this goal, Margarita plans on taking yet another step forward in her education at Wayne Community College, with an eye on career options in the healthcare field. Literacy Connections of Wayne County congratulates Mrs. Garcia-Fernandez in her immense accomplishment starting from her journey in 2012 at Literacy Connections to her graduation from Wayne Community College on May 12, 2017 with her High School Equivalency Diploma.
