The Rogers County Literacy Council is based in the Will Rogers Library in Claremore. It’s a small space where a lot of big things happen. There is a common area where tutors can meet with their students, and a back office for executive director Edel Godwin. It’s functional, if a bit cramped.
Then Edel met Sue Ramirez, who is the general manager of Lowe’s Claremore. Each year, the store chooses two goodwill projects, and this year, the Literacy Council was the recipient of an office makeover.
Lowe’s donated paint (courtesy of Olympic Paint) and volunteers to do the dirty work. Pictured here (from right): Roma Ramthun (Lowe’s), Sue Ramirez (Lowe’s), and Nicholas DeMier (Olympic). The crew painted everything, and installed new cabinets and shelves.
Longtime Literacy Council supporter Jon Douthitt gave the new office a test run. Approved!
The Rogers County Literacy Council would like to thank Lowe’s and Olympic and everyone who helped with this endeavor. It is greatly appreciated!
