The Loudoun Literacy Council is beginning its 40th Anniversary celebration a little early by unveiling a new 40th-year logo and special pricing for adult English for Speakers of Other Languages classes.
The organization began its operations as the only non-denominational literacy provider in Loudoun County in 1980, and in 2020 marks its official 40th Anniversary. Beginning with the January registration for five levels of adult classes throughout the county, Loudoun Literacy Council will charge $40 per 12-week session (two instructional hours per week.)
“Loudoun Literacy Council has been changing lives and promoting personal growth and empowerment since 1980 and has always been flexible in pricing, because we believe so strongly in helping those who want to strengthen their English-language skills so they can become more active members of Loudoun County,” said Chairwoman Margaret Brown. “Over the past few years, thanks to our Executive Director Nikki Daruwala and our amazing staff, Loudoun Literacy Council has expanded programs and classes, as well as strengthened relationships throughout the county.
“It is from the standpoint of this strengthened foundation and these relationships that that we worked with Nikki and Karen Feldman, who leads our adult programs, to create this special pricing. We hope that it will help propel the incredible momentum and expansion they have already begun,” Brown concluded.
New pricing will go into effect immediately, and students interested in attending adult ESOL classes can find more information about times and locations at loudounliteracy.org/english-class. Scholarships are available and no one is turned away because of a lack of financial resources.
The new 40th anniversary logo was designed by Leesburg-based AlphaGraphics.
