My name is Pam and I am extremely proud to be the daughter of a very dedicated adult learner. I hope that this letter will demonstrate why my mother, Rollande, deserves recognition.
In her early years, her primary focus was ensuring that my brother and I were provided with all of the opportunities to obtain a quality education. All of the sacrifices she made have contributed to the successful adult I have become. My mother has finally found an opportunity in her life where she can focus on making her dreams of reading a reality.
I take pride in her courage to follow her dream at the age of fifty-eight by starting her literacy program at Adult Literacy Fredericton. I have witnessed her successfully complete many levels of this program in a short amount of time. In June of 2014, my mother received a 2014 Sheree Fitch Adult Learner Scholarship Award. In just nine short months, my mother was able to write an essay that described her challenges and her inspiration to join the Laubach Literacy NB organization. The pride I saw in my mother that day will carry with me for the rest of my life. This success has come with many challenges and with hard work, which needs to be celebrated. The dedication she demonstrates to her literacy program and her determination to continue her journey of improving her literacy skills is very impressive.
It is my hope that you will help me celebrate and recognize my mother’s accomplishments. This recognition makes all of the challenges she has faced with her literacy journey worthwhile, and provides her with the confidence to recognize that her dream of reading is a true attainable reality.
