State Official Visit Seeds

Seeds of Literacy has been on a quest to demonstrate just how important adult literacy is — and how important our program is to the Northeast Ohio community — ever since the State stopped our funding last year.

We’ve invited all of our State officials to visit our sites, talk to our students, and meet with our tutors.

We’re extremely grateful to all that have made the trip to see us, and hope that more join this growing list of new friends.
