About the event
This year we successfully launched a capital campaign, moved to a new location, and experienced record student growth. Come celebrate with us at the Cornhusker Hotel on Thursday, November 9! The evening will include social time, a plated dinner, a cash bar with table service, international speakers, and entertainment.
Between 2021 and 2022, Lincoln Literacy’s student population grew by 37%. We served a total of 1,109 adult learners in 2022, and as of July 31 this year, we had already served 1,156 adults, beating last year’s record growth in only 7 months. Lincoln Literacy students are also growing in their skills with 81% of students improving at least one level on their English assessment. Middle Eastern students are our largest demographic, making up 32% of our student population in 2022, followed by Spanish-speaking students (25%), Asian and Pacific Islander students (18%), and Ukrainian and Russian students (14%). The Lincoln Literacy team is excited to start fall classes on September 5.
“It’s an amazing time for us and our students,” says Executive Director Bryan Seck. “We are so excited for the future and what this means for Lincoln Literacy. With these advancements, we will be able to help even more students and enable even more people to get the skills they need to become successful, right here in Lincoln. The demand is only growing, and we aim to deliver.”
The Global Celebration will feature a plated dinner and cash bar with table service (provided by the Cornhusker Hotel), social time, an international performance by Latino dance group Sangre Azteca, keynote speaker Dinorah Garcia (KZUM radio host), and a cultural art sample from our summer Art Family Camp students.
