Dear volunteers and friends,

On July 1, 2000, I started working as Executive Director for Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County. It has been a wonderful journey. Effective January 10, 2014, I am retiring. My favorite part of the job has been working with volunteers—YOU—and I thank you for this opportunity.

Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County will be in good hands going forward. Judy Smith has been appointed to this position. She knows LVORC well having served as a tutor and coordinator of the Everybody Wins! program. Her “hello” to you is below:

I am very excited to be joining this wonderful organization and to have this opportunity to meet you. I can’t wait to get started and to work with you in our efforts to improve the lives of our learners through literacy. Feel free to stop by and introduce yourself. My email will be
