Kay Mackley & Dolly Engle Literacy Council Founders

The Literacy Council’s new Giving Societies were announced by Board member Ric Adams at the Celebration of Achievements held on May 12, 2015. These Giving Societies will recognize businesses, foundations and individuals who step forward as philanthropic leaders to advance the mission of helping adults to achieve personal goals and integrate more fully into the community through improved literacy and English language proficiency.

Caroline Gaver

The establishment of the Giving Societies is in honor of the Council’s long-time President Caroline Gaver, and our founding members Kay Mackley and Dolly Engle, whose commitments to empowering adults through English language proficiency has had a profound impact on Frederick County.
