Learning to Read at Age 52 -- LCMC Student's Autobiography is Published!
Photo by Dr. Bob Laubach
Just five years ago,Milton Whitley wasn't able to read and he believed he was "unteachable." His autobiography chronicles a difficult childhood, problems in school, coping with addictions, and the joys of his new life, which resulted from learning to read. Today, Milton is living a life he never dreamed possible. He is employed, serves as a mentor, advocates for adult literacy services, and is studying for his GED. "I'm loving life," says Milton. Congratulations to Milton and to his tutor, Mary-Ellen Friedland, who was instrumental in helping Milton achieve so much.
