Duncan Area Literacy Council attended the Oklahoma Literacy Coalition Conference in Norman at the end of August 2017. A compilation of stories written by students of the Oklahoma Literacy Coalition had been published and was available at the event. Three student authors from the Duncan area were among those whose stories were chosen for the book: Margo Morales, Veronica Chavez and Devon Thomasson. Margo Morales and Veronica autographed books during the event.
Tutors Beverly Merchant, Kay Bechtel and Jean McDowell also attended the event along with DALC Director Mary Brancich.
Congratulations to our students AND authors!

The students in Nancy Litsch’s class created paper mâché figures of horses and learned new vocabulary words: texture, paper mâché, twigs, sticks, mane and tale. While working on their creative projects the students also enjoyed the exhibits at the museum and experienced life “On the Chisholm Trail” and the film “Animals of the Southwest”.
