I have been acquainted with Better Basic for over r 20 years. I have served on the Board for seven as Secretary, Vice-President and President. Better Basic has a clear vision and works with efficiency, dedication and purpose as they serve the children of the Birmingham and surrounding area. Volunteers and retired teachers work one on one and with small groups to teach the basics of reading and instill a desire to read and a love for literature. I am honored to have been a part of such a wonderful group of professionals and dedicated volunteers.
I have been involved with Better Basics for three years. This organization has been sucessful in working with intercity schools to help improve reading schools. More than 16,000 under-served students participated in Better Basics Programs this past year. The Better Basics programs help children make great strides in reading and learning skills.
