Meet KLC Learner Carl Sanders

Meet KLC Learner Carl Sanders
My name is Carl Sanders and I am 56 years old. Let me give you a little background aobut myself: I own a small business in Kenosha, I am the Sergeant at Arms at the Kenosha Rotary Club, I also sit on the Board of Directors of the New Song Ministry. I would like to tell you about my experience at the Kenosha Literacy Council. But first, let me tell you what brought me to the Literacy Council: A couple of years ago, a business associate asked if I would be interested in joining the Kenosha Rotary Club. I thought, “no big deal, good for business.” So, I became a member. I got to know some of the Rotarians. They are lawyers, doctors, the fire chief, realtors and so on. On night I got a call and was asked if I would be interested in becoming the next Sergeant at Arms. I said I would think about it. You see, I had a little secret-I couldn’t read very well. I barely made it to the ninth grade when I dropped out of school. I was terrified. I had heard about the Literacy Council from a fellow Rotarian. I told him about my problem and he helped me get in touch with the Literacy Council. I didn’t know what to expect at first. They explained to me what they were going to do to help me and I knew right away that they were not there to judge me—just to help. So, I met Sue, a Literacy Council volunteer—one of many. They are great people. I don’t know what I would do with out Sue or the Literacy Council. They have helped so much! Now, we’re working on getting my G.E.D. I hope someday I can help somebody learn to read. Oh, by the way, I am now the President Elect of the Rotary Club. It’s never too late. I love reading now. I can go on trips and never leave home. Plus, I learn so many things because I can read! Carl just recently earned his G.E.D. and is enrolled to begin classes at Gateway Technical College in the interior design program.
