Ouachita Calhoun Counties Literacy Council
May 11, 2010

After a number of years of inactivity, Southern Arkansas University Tech led the effort to reinvigorate the OCCLC. With a new board, encouragement and support from the Arkansas Literacy Council, the college, and the tireless work of our AmeriCorps service member, the Literacy Council has made an immeasureable impact on Ouachita, Calhoun, and Union counties over the past 14 months. The community has responded well to the call for volunteer tutors, tutoring locations, and activities. Dozens of students are being served in the cause of literacy development that otherwise may not have had the opportunity to improve these skills.

The Great!
