LiteracyCNY Executive Director Marsha L. Tait Receives Executive of the Year Award

Thu, Mar 1st 2018 04:00 pm

Bankers Healthcare Group Board of Directors President Bill Byrne said "I was pleased to nominate Marsha for the Executive of the Year award because her leadership and innovation has positively affected the lives of thousands of students. This recognition of her sustained effort to improve literacy in our community is well deserved.” 


Tait said, "I am so humbled to be given this award.  I am terribly proud of the work that our team – Board Members, staff, and volunteers - does to help adults in our community to transform their lives through literacy. We estimate that there are more than 60,000 adults in Onondaga County who have only the most limited literacy skills and/or English proficiency.  Most of them live with inter-generational poverty.  Adult education gives people hope and unlocks their human potential.  It is so rewarding to watch students pursue their educational dreams with the help of our program!"


LiteracyCNY's mission is to provide adults in Central New York with the literacy tools and skills that they need to be contributing, productive, and engaged members of the community.  LiteracyCNY enrolled more than 500 adult literacy students last year and has been ranked Highly Proficient by the NYS Department of Education for several years.


Congratulations Marsha!!!
