Brady Earns Excellence in Literacy Leadership Award

Recognition

BY SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY NOV 20, 2017

Veronica Brady, senior vice president for philanthropy at Gulf Coast Community Foundation, will receive the 2018 Excellence in Literacy Leadership Award presented by the Reading Recovery Teacher Leaders. The award will recognize Brady’s vital role in implementing and expanding Reading Recovery in Sarasota County Schools and promoting the successful literacy program beyond the region. Reading Recovery is an intensive, short-term intervention for first-graders who struggle in learning to read and write. Specially trained literacy teachers provide daily, individual lessons designed to accelerate students’ progress to grade level within 20 weeks. Brady was instrumental in first bringing Reading Recovery to Sarasota schools in fall 2015. After much success, Reading Recovery was implemented district-wide this school year. The award will be presented in February before more than 2,000 attendees at the National Reading Recovery & K-6 Literacy Conference in Columbus, Ohio.
