Kathleen is a non-stop worker as a volunteer to support young people in schools who have not had a chance to develop their literacy skills. She created a contest for the local Ocean Fest providing middle and high school youth mentors and trainers to learn how to write a poem, make a graph or prepare a film on a theme within the issues of the world’s oceans. She is the literacy chair of the Tacoma Sunrise Rotary. We didn’t have a literacy chair until Kathleen joined the Club. She took over immediately and has scored high marks each year throughout the Rotary District.
Kathleen has touched the hearts of Tacoma City Council members, tribal members, teachers and
parents. She contacts every person or group that has a stake in this important skill for our kids to
succeed in the future.
