Hello and thank you for taking an interest in The REAL Program. I am deeply honored to have the trust from families, community leaders, volunteers of all ages and from all communities and parts of my life to help me in my conviction that literacy is a key ingredient for success.

I have recently been honored with the title of MASS Literacy Champion with four other dedicated literacy champions.
