At the 17th Annual Adult S-p-e-l-l-i-n-g Bee on November 12 two teams squared off for the final two rounds: Bee-lievers from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Logophiles from JAARS. In the 12th round, Logophiles defended its 2014 win and correctly spelled ‘synonymous.’

Make a Difference: Start Tutoring This Month

Do you want to tutor?

Our volunteer tutors help beginner reader adults. Providing weekly lessons, tutors help students to learn English. We'll train you how to prepare and deliver lesson plans.

With reading, writing and comprehension skills, students have the skills and confidence to participate in parent-teacher conferences, read for pleasure, follow current events in the news and get a new job.

The commitment is about three hours a week. Send a note to our executive director to sign up for the tutor training in January. Read more.

Support Our Mission

Our literacy instruction for adults who live or work in Union County is provided free thanks to broad community support. Every day of the week volunteers and staff provide tutoring at our Adult Literacy Center in downtown Monroe, at branches of Union County Public Library and at other sites throughout the county. Would you consider a charitable gift today? The impact of your gift is tremendous. In this video, Michael shares what individual attention has meant to him.

Thank you!
