Every year, the Umpqua Reading Council has nominations for a local Literacy Leader in our Douglas County community. The URC board, chooses the leader based on the nomination application that is submitted. In 2017, Sherri Good, a colleague of Debi Allen submitted a nomination for Debi to be our Literacy Leader of 2017. Her statement of Debi’s dedication and devotion to the learning of her students really stood out. Congratulations to Debi. Family, colleagues and friends attended a reception held in Debi Allen’s honor in January 2017!
