Lynda Breeden, Putnam County Adult Literacy Council, Cookeville, TN

The primary focus of our organization is the human services of literacy, GED, and skillbuilding. By improving the participants’ education, they are more employable and are often better able to take care of personal, family, and civic responsibilities. Helping to break the cycle of under-education and under-employment directly impacts the health and welfare of our children and the quality of life in our community.
