Greenville, SC. January 10, 2017 Greenville Literacy Association is proud to welcome Eleanor Vaughn as the newest addition to their staff. Eleanor has been added as Development Coordinator, overseeing fundraising events and initiatives, supporting marketing and communications, and assisting with grant writing.
Eleanor brings years of experience in marketing, event planning, and education to GLA. Most recently, she was an English Instructor with Wetzel Languages. Prior to that, she helped execute events with La Bastide at the Cliffs Communities and worked as an overseas marketing contractor for Pong Research. She is a former GLA tutor and in 2015, she served on GLA’s 50th Anniversary Gala Steering Committee.
Jocelyn Slaughter, Executive Director of GLA, stated that “Eleanor brings a well-rounded perspective of our work and will play a key role in helping our organization implement long-term, sustainable fundraising initiatives.”
Greenville Literacy Association (GLA) has served Greenville, South Carolina, and surrounding areas for over 50 years. GLA is the largest community-based adult literacy program in South Carolina and is one of the most highly developed in the nation. GLA recruits and trains community volunteers to provide instruction for adults who need help with basic education, GED studies, WorkKeys test preparation, and English as a Second Language (ESL). The organization operates three fully-equipped and staffed learning centers across Greenville County and assists church and neighborhood literacy programs near these centers. For more information, call 864-467-3456 or visit the GLA website at www.greenvilleliteracy.org.
In the event of a delay or closing due to inclement weather, please note that Greenville Literacy Association will be listed under Private Schools on WYFF's television broadcast and on the WYFF website.
