The Legacy Center Celebrates World Literacy Day with Prize Giveaways

In celebration of World Literacy Day, September 8th, The Legacy Center held a Kindle Prize Giveaway Event for learners and tutors. The Kindle products were donated by CPI Fluid Engineering, a local division of the Lubrizol Corporation, in memory of their employee, Nicholas J. Sperry. Participants were asked to submit a statement describing what they liked best about tutoring with The Legacy Center. Several tutors and learners participated in the random drawing.

  • Cindy Bozkaya, an English as a Second Language learner, won a Kindle Paperwhite. She said the staff and volunteer tutors have helped her improve her English fluency and math skills, which has helped her make progress in school.
  • Dawson Willis, a Barton Reading and Spelling learner, won a Kindle FIRE Kid’s Edition. He said that his tutor is helping him learn to read, he’s having fun and he can now read by himself!
  • Aimee Kopiwada, who has been a volunteer tutor for nearly eight years, won a two-year subscription to Kindle Unlimited. When asked about what she likes best, she said it warms her heart to see a young person, who has been struggling to read, begin to relax and enjoy reading.

The Legacy Center turns the dream of being able to read and understand language into a reality for adults and children alike. We provide free and confidential tutoring in reading, spelling, math and English as a Second Language so that people of all ages can reach their full potential.
