August 07, 2018

A $15,000 grant from Maritz will continue support of the Webster University Student Literacy Corps and Math Tutoring Program. "This grant will ensure that Webster students can continue to tutor and that struggling readers will continue to enjoy the additional support and encouragement tutors provide," said Kate Northcott, director of the Student Literacy Corps, which began in 1990. St. Louis’ growing population of English Language Learners has only increased the need for such engagement, she said.
