"The Teacher Who Couldn't Read"
A Rewarding Success
The Moore County Literacy Council hosted a fundraising dinner on April 16th featuring John Corcoran, a successful businessman, college graduate and high school teacher who managed to hide his inability to read for decades until age 48 when he finally realized he needed to rid himself of the frustration and embarrassment of illiteracy and began working with a literacy tutor.
The dinner was attended by 160 supporters of the MCLC and the money raised will help fund the Council's adult basic education and English as a Second Language learning programs.
The Pilot covered the event and embellished on John's humorous, lively and touching speech - to read the article CLICK HERE.
Here are a few images from the dinner...enjoy!
