Letter to the editor: Ty Coleman’s efforts valuable for Save the Children

As a Save the Children Program Specialist and Community Engagement Specialist, I would like to publicly thank Ty Coleman for his support, dedication, and participation of our programs. Ty’s support was essential related to the successful Implementation of the following events and activities, with our community: Alamosa Literacy Council, After-school literacy program, reading corners, StoryWalk, Parent/Child group meetings, Advocacy Summit, and visibility for Save the Children.

Ty has been an active member of the Alamosa Literacy Council for two years; the council was put together through a grant received by Save the Children form the Department of Education. As a literacy council member, Ty had a significant role in the planning, and installation of the StoryWalk at City Hall. Ty has taken the time to be involved in the School District through the after-school program and the Parent/Child group meetings. Ty was a guest reader at the opening of the first reading corner at Nestle Toll House and the Parent/Child group meeting at the Alamosa Pubic Library during the SummerFest. Ty recently represented the San Luis Valley at the Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC.

I offer my sincerest gratitude to Ty for investing so much time and energy in support of our programs and literacy based activities. We often hear the phrase, “it takes a village to raise a child”, and I believe that it takes more than just a village to support the growth and well-being of children; it takes very dedicated individuals like Ty Coleman working within their community to reach common goals.

A heartfelt thank you to Ty Coleman for being a key player in the success of the Save the Children Community Engagement and programming and bringing visibility to our literacy programs in Alamosa, Co.
