Kaskaskia College is proud to announce that Phyllis Harmening of Centralia is the recipient of the 2013 Kaskaskia College Community Education Award.
Phyllis is retired from Kaskaskia College but has volunteered for “The Reading Link” for the past 2 1/2 years. She has tutored 110 hours and has helped nine different students either
improve their reading or learn the English language. She is committed to being a well-trained tutor and has enrolled in fourteen extra hours of training at local workshops.
Her colleagues describe her as being “enthusiastic” about “The Reading Link” and serving others. She has recruited other volunteers and last year received the Tutor Incentive Award.
Because of her concern for others, Phyllis is willing to give of her time to help students reach their educational goals. She has worked with ABE (Adult Basic Education) students as well as ESL (English as a Second Language) students.
