Mission Statement

Read To Succeed is a community partnership created to promote reading in Rutherford County, with emphasis on family literacy. This non-profit initiative supports literacy programs and fosters awareness of the importance of reading.

Adult Literacy Program Mission
The Read To SucceedAdult Literacy Programwill address basic literacy needs of adults in Rutherford County who desire the opportunity to improve their skills for personal and/or career development.

Description

Read To Succeed was established in the summer of 2003. Paul Vaughan, Managing Director of the Jennings and Rebecca Jones Foundation, met with professionals who were involved in literacy programs in Murfreesboro. He offered the Foundation's resources as support to a new community literacy initiative and this group of dedicated educators, social workers, agency directors, community helpers and volunteers became the Read To Succeed Council. This community partnership was created to promote reading in Rutherford County, with emphasis on family literacy. Read to Succeed sponsors Reading in the Schools Day, Reading Rally, Read To Bee, and Reader Training as part of its community initiative.
