On Friday, April 24, Elizabeth Kameen, president of the Pike County Bar Association presented a check for $7,500 to Annette Petry , President of the Wayne Pike Adult Literacy Program who was accompanied by one of their students, Joseph Sanducci. Since 1986, the Wayne & Pike County Adult Literacy Program (WPALP), a non-profit volunteer association, has been providing free tutoring services and textbooks to adults in Wayne and Pike Counties who are seeking; to improve their literacy, to learn English, or to obtain a GED. The Pike County Bar Association has been a major supporter of Continuing Legal Education, while supporting elementary and high school academic achievement through scholarships and classroom activities, in addition to sponsoring Wallenpaupack Little League and the Challenger Division of Little League baseball in Pike County. The WPALP, which does not receive any state or federal funds, currently has 34 tutors providing tutoring for 44 students in Wayne and Pike counties including the two correctional facilities. This contribution by the Pike County Bar Association provides much needed support during these rough economic times. Any adult, interested in improving their literacy or in volunteering for three hours a week, should go to their website WWW.WPALP.ORG or call (570) 253-3221.
