by on August 01, 2011 8:44 AM

The Mid-State Literacy Council has named Amy Wilson as its new executive director, the nonprofit organization announced last week.

Wilson has worked with the council as director of workforce and English-as-a-second-language programs for the past year, according to a news release. She has other experience as a workforce consultant and literacy specialist in public institutions and private industries, it says.

Additionally, the release notes, Wilson has worked as an administrator, teacher and adult-education trainer.

"Our vision is to provide progressive education for adults to allow them to accomplish their family goals and work goals," Wilson said in the release. "With donations from our community and volunteer support, we offer instruction in reading, writing, math, language and computer skills."

Wilson succeeds Monica Matthews, who departed the council in May after serving as executive director for more than 20 years.

The council, a largely volunteer-driven operation, provides private tutoring to adults and ESL instruction to non-English-speaking residents in central Pennsylvania.
