Honor: Tutor of the Month for September

Name: Diane Nichols

Organization: Marinette and Oconto Counties Literacy Council

Why honored: Nichols has been a volunteer tutor with Marinette and Oconto Counties Literacy Council since she completed tutor training in May 2017. She initially began tutoring within the Marinette County Jail; with completion of the Oconto County jail, Diane began tutoring there. At first, she had been teaching GED preparation but has changed her focus to running a book club. Nichols said she enjoys reading along in the chosen book with the inmates in the book club and brain-storming with the group about why the characters in the book are handling issues a certain way. Members of the book club are each given a paperback copy of the selected book so they can also read ahead on their own.
