Creek County Literacy Program Announces New Board of Directors
Creek County Literacy Program (CCLP), A Sapulpa-Based nonprofit Literacy program, has announced its 2014-15 Board of Directors.
Barbara Fuente, Senior Account Manager of HireRight, is the Program’s President. Derald Buckley, Retired Educator, is Vice President.
“This has been a very eventful year for CCLP,” said Fuente. “This is our twenty-fifth year serving Creek County, and summer, which is generally a time that our staff and tutors slow down, has been busier than ever. We recently hosted a workshop in which forty-seven new tutors were trained for our Caring Grands program. Caring Grands are senior citizens who volunteer at area elementary schools with struggling first and second grade readers. We are excited about this new growth.”
CCLP’s Executive Board also includes Shawna Ellis, Human Resources of American Heritage Bank, serving as Treasurer, and Connie Jones, Teacher with Sapulpa Head Start, serving as Secretary.
