MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Read To Succeed will be hosting a volunteer training on Tuesday, Jan. 28, for residents interested in helping with literacy programs and special events throughout the coming months.
The sessions is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. at Lon Nuell Literacy Center inside First Baptist Church near downtown Murfreesboro and will wrap up at about 7 p.m.
In case of inclement weather, officials said the training will take place the following Tuesday, Feb. 4.
As trained volunteers, residents will have the opportunity to assist Read to Succeed in a variety of ways.
