ETP Tutor Participates in Literacy in St. Louis Panel

English Tutoring Projects strives to connect and partner with others who are working for strong community building to assist others in need. As part of this goal, one of our tutors, Sister Joan Stoverink, recently participated in Literacy in St. Louis: A Panel with the Experts. “On behalf of Mortar Board, I wanted to reach out and thank you both again for helping us host a wonderful panel event to kick off our literacy awareness week last evening. Sr. Stoverink, we were all so touched and impressed by all the wisdom and advice you gave us in regards to promoting literacy in our everyday lives, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And Sr. Koenen, thank you so much for connecting us with Sr. Stoverink, as we would not have had the opportunity to have her on the panel without your help. I am so impressed by how much ETP has grown since the first time I met Sr. Koenen, and I have no doubt that it’ll only continue to grow under your leadership. The students are so lucky to have you in their lives.” (Erin Kim, February 12, 2018) Erin Kim (Washington University, Olin School of Business, St. Louis, MO) Member of Team of 5 Students from the School of Business who assisted ETP Feasibility Study through the Taylor Community Grant from Wash U in Spring...

M Saigh to serve as a legacy of the gifts he gave throughout his lifetime to the community of St. Louis. Mr. Saigh was the child of immigrants and we believe that this gift would have greatly pleased him as it enables us to serve children with whom he would have easily identified.
