Senator Lisa Baker’s office recognized the Wayne Pike Adult Literacy Program and its volunteer tutors at the Program’s 28th Annual Tutor Recognition Luncheon on Thursday September 18, 2014. Senator Baker at the time was at the memorial and funeral service for slain Pennsylvania Trooper Byron Dickson. In her place, Andrew Seder the district representative from Senator Lisa Baker’s office, presented Awards of Honor ranging from 50 to 1,000 volunteer hours, including Five, Ten, and Fifteen years of volunteer service awards, The Wayne County Tutor of the Year, The Pike County Tutor of the Year, and Student of the Year Award. Andrew Seder said, “Literacy is the backbone of a democracy. And volunteerism is an important facet of any successful community. This organization combines both and what it does is vitally important to our society and its future. While we gather today to give you thanks, it shouldn’t be something you only hear one day of the year. So know that what you do is something that I, Sen. Baker, and others in Wayne and Pike counties are very thankful for the other 364 days as well.”
