As students in Carroll County prepare to head back to school and college, many adults are taking advantage of a free educational opportunity to learn to read and write at the Literacy Council of Carroll County (LCCC). These adult students are often individuals who were left behind in school for a number of different reasons. Some are immigrants from any number of countries, such as Russia, Korea, Georgia, Cameroon, and numerous Latin America countries. They are pursuing the ability to read, write and speak English. Most have the ultimate goal of becoming citizens. Whatever the reason, they all have one common goal: to improve their lives through a better education. Accomplishing that will lead to getting a job or improving on their current positions.
