The Literacy Council establishes the Engle Memorial Fund, using most of the donations to fund an outreach effort in Washington, Allegany, and Garrett counties. As a result, Garrett and Washington counties form their own Literacy Councils and Allegany County is able to provide tutor training workshops. More than 100 tutors in those three counties are trained by Frederick County volunteer trainers until trainers can be mentored and certified there. Frederick County volunteers also train tutors in Carroll County, Loudoun County, and two Pennsylvania counties.
