Honor: Tutor/Student of the Month for March

Name: Susan Lewis and Lyudmila Kapasheva

Organization: Marinette & Oconto Counties Literacy Council

Why honored: Lewis was a devoted teacher from Marinette. Since retiring, she wanted to continue to help others to read and learn. She was introduced to the literacy council and felt she might be able to use her education and experience to teach another adult. Kapasheva was born and raised in Kazakhstan. She and her spouse moved to Marinette in 2017; they have expanded their family to include a son. Kapasheva turned to the literacy council for assisting in improving her spoken English. Lewis and Kapasheva were meeting regularly at the Stephenson Public Library. Their in-person visits have been affected by the COVID-19 lockdown but they have tried to keep in touch using technology.
