Local Artist Donates Paintings for Tutoring Room
Three poppy paintings by local artist Sheila McPhee now hang on the walls of Laubach Literacy Fredericton’s tutoring room at the Victoria Health Centre, adding the finishing touches to a renovation process that began in June with the repainting of the walls by United Way Day of Caring volunteers. Tutors meet here one-on-one with their learners for private weekly sessions over the course of the learning period. The room is comfortable, quiet, and, thanks to Sheila’s beautiful work, a welcoming and cheerful learning space. Lori Gallagher interviewed LLF tutor/board member Vivian Farrar, Sheila, and Tutor Coordinator Deborah Humble for a feature article on the new learning space in the Thursday, Dec. 18th edition of the Daily Gleaner.

It is with great pleasure to share this year’s recipient of the Peter Sawyer Scholarship Award, presented by Laubach Literacy NB.
Congratulations to Danny, an Adult Literacy Learner from Fredericton, NB. 📚 👏 He is the first recipient of the new, annual Peter Sawyer Scholarship Award.
Alison Teague, Executive Director, noted in her nomination that “it has been almost six years since Danny tackled his first basic lessons. His ambition to read was very real and has not wavered since.” That is the dedication and hard work that Laubach Literacy wants to encourage.
The Peter Sawyer Scholarship was initiated by Laubach Literacy NB in 2019 upon the retirement of its founding member, Peter Sawyer. The Scholarship will be awarded annually to an adult learner registered with Laubach Literacy NB or one of its affiliated councils in recognition of their effort and commitment to the program.
