The Dollar General Literacy Foundation was founded in 1993 to provide opportunities for those who want a basic education. The foundation assists students as they learn English or prepare for a high school equivalency test. Recently, the focus has shifted to helping non-native English speakers in the community access these literacy services.
Dr. Logsdon from the Center for Literacy has partnered with the Dollar General Literacy Foundation for many years to help with adult literacy. However, this is the first time such a great effort has been made to connect these services with non-native English speakers in the community. She hopes this will make a big difference for those needing help improving their literacy skills.
The scholarship allows students to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. The scholarship recipients will receive $500 to conduct 30 hours of ESL community instruction. The grant is offered by Assistant Professor of Teacher Education and Director of the Center for Literacy, Dr. Jeremy Logsdon, through funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

“This scholarship will benefit both teaching English to non-native speakers in our community and helping WKU students build the necessary skills to become successful at teaching English to speakers of other languages. We hope this is the first semester of a long-running project to help students who wish to become ESL teachers and practitioners.”
