Sr. Ruth Ann has been with the BLC from its very beginning in 2011 and has served since then as the primary grant writer for our organization. She has worked tirelessly to increase the reach of the BLC by bringing in necessary funding from a wide variety of venues ranging from local charitable groups to national foundations.
Through Sr. Ruth Ann's efforts last year, the Brunner Literacy Center raised in excess of $100,000 to provide programs, materials, resources, and even bus tokens for our clients to make education as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.
Sr. Ruth Ann continues to tutor clients in addition to gaining funding for the organization. She teaches, on average, five GED students a week in individual sessions to improve their higher-level math skills. One calculation suggests that over the course of her service to the BLC, Sr. Ruth Ann has given over 6,300 hours of service to furthering our mission.
The Brunner Literacy Center wouldn't be where it is today without the efforts of Sr. Ruth Ann Meyer! We thank her for her work, and we hope she continues to be a part of our mission for a long time to come.
