Rotary Club celebrates Village Library successes
When the Mid-Cities Pacesetters Rotary Club founded the Village Library in 2003, the after-school program provided a safe place for children to gather, read, and work on their homework. Fast forward to 2015, and the Village Library has evolved to providing structured, one-on-one tutoring for about 50 children each week.  

Earlier this month, members of the Rotary Club had the chance to celebrate the success of the program they helped found. At their weekly meeting, they heard from Quillan, a student from the early days of the program, who is now in engineering school at UTA. They also heard from Edith, a middle-school student who has been in the program since kindergarten.  The room was proud to hear that Edith had never made anything but A's during her school career.

At the meeting, members of the club honored Mary Sholty, former Director of Student Enrichment for her dedication in building the Village Library program.  They also welcomed Sheila Haynes, our new Interim Director of Student Enrichment.

The Mid-Cities Pacesetters Rotary Club has been loyal in providing volunteers to the Village Library. The club adopts several tutoring shifts each semester, and members of the club rotate who covers the shift each week. This is a great model that other clubs or groups of friends could copy to help support the Village Library. For more information about volunteering, contact 817-595-0011 or missioncentralvolunteers@gmail.com.
