High School Diploma Within Reach for All

After leaving high school at 19, Phillip Morgan started a career driving trucks to support his family. When he was told he had diabetes and was unable to continue working, he found he needed more skills to pivot to a new career.  Seven years of dialysis and a kidney replacement later, Phillip celebrated a new lease on life and decided to go back to school.

When he began taking courses at Madison Area Technical College to prepare for the high school equivalency diploma (HSED), Phillip was the oldest person in his classes. "When I first started school, it was difficult for me," he shares. He has since been paired up with a volunteer tutor from Literacy Network to help him in the eight subject areas tested on the HSED. "With the knowledge they give me," Phillip says, "I can go back and finish school." His biggest supporter is his eight-year-old granddaughter; they help each other do homework and she reminds him every day of why getting his education is  so important.

Thank you for taking steps to support adult literacy!

Nearly 250 people stepped up to support Literacy Network learners and programs for the 26th annual Run for Literacy. Warm weather and an electric crowd brought great race times and great support for the almost 1,200 adults served by Literacy Network each year. Thanks to our amazing volunteer Run committee and all the runners and walkers, this year's event was a success raising over $19,000.
