Ellen Melyon currently serves as the Vice President ofKenosha Literacy Council's Board of Directors.
As a teen I worked with children of migrant farm workers. Ever since that experience I have worked personally and professionally to offer services to those who may need help learning to read or acquire English language skills. As a librarian I have had the opportunity to write literacy grants for building library collections for emerging readers and to purchase materials for people learning to build their English language skills. Serving as a board member for the Kenosha Literacy Council gives me another opportunity to help build literacy skills.
Reading has given me so much pleasure personally and professionally, it is my wish that everyone has the reading skills to improve their quality of life.
