Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County announces the appointment of Judith Smith to the position of Executive Director. Judy brings to the organization a wealth of professional educational experience as well as insight from the point of view of a Literacy Volunteer.
A resident of Troy, Judy was an elementary school teacher in urban and suburban settings for 24 years prior to going into school administration. She was a school principal for eight and a half years at Christ the King School in Guilderland, until the school closed due to low enrollment. Judy’s commitment to education and literacy brought her at that time to LVORC to volunteer. She got involved in not only tutoring but also the Read With Me program and was instrumental in launching and coordinating the Everybody Wins! Power Lunch program. According to Judy, “Being part of LVORC as a volunteer gave me a broader understanding of the issues of literacy locally, the individuals served and how the volunteers and staff of LVORC work together to address the literacy needs in our community.”
Most recently, Judy has been employed as an Adult Education Teacher with Questar III BOCES teaching and preparing adult students for their high school equivalency exam and as the Program Coordinator for Schenectady County with Literacy New York Greater Capital Region.
