LearningQuest – Stanislaus Literacy Centers, a regional nonprofit, had students win multiple awards this year. Karen Williams, LearningQuest’s Executive Director, said, “I am so proud of both our students and our staff. The staff kept them encouraged with phone calls, tutoring, and help with roadblocks and barriers. Our students are adults with complicated lives and have to overcome huge challenges to achieve these goals and excel in their education. Both have contributed to this huge accomplishment of winning every award.”
