Event description

Description

On March 8, the Literacy Network of Stanislaus County will hold its 20th annual Celebrate Literacy Awards Luncheon highlighting literacy and literacy-related training in the county. At the celebration we will:


  • recognize three outstanding adult education students
  • highlight exemplary education and training programs
  • hear an inspirational speaker
  • present the Betty Mulnix Service Award to an individual who has performed distinguished service in the field of literacy
  • present the Jean and Clyde Dunlap Award to a community member who has made outstanding contributions to local literacy efforts

The luncheon will be held at the Petersen Event Center, 720 12th Street, Modesto. Free parking will be available at the 12th Street Parking Garage provided that you mention that you are attending a SPIE/Literacy Network event. Sign-in will commence at 11:00 a.m. The buffet luncheon catered by O’Brien’s Market will be served at 11:30 a.m. The program will begin at 11:50 a.m. and conclude by 1:00 p.m.

The featured speaker will be Linda Murphy-Lopes, a retired educator who overcame many barriers to become successful. These included poverty, English as her second language, and teenage motherhood. Despite these life experiences, she persevered, completing high school credits at Turlock Adult School and working various jobs while completing her college education. Her career path led her from paraprofessional to teacher, assistant principal, and finally principal in the Turlock Unified School District.

Every year this event is truly inspirational and joyous. I hope you will make it a priority to attend the celebration and bring personnel from your organization to congratulate and support the award winners. Registration is $35 including lunch. Please seriously consider a sponsorship of $175 to help cover the costs of lunches provided gratis to nominees, award winners, and their families.
