Rudy Castro

By Marjorie Graf, Literacy Source volunteer tutor

I have been a tutor for Rudy Castro since his November 2015 enrollment in the ABE program. Rudy arrived at Literacy Source by accident after taking the wrong bus to a destination. Rudy began his ABE studies with very limited ability to read. During the past 14 months, he has made excellent progress and remains committed to continue learning (in his words) "to better myself." Rudy has always been highly motivated to continue learning and would like to achieve his GED. His ultimate goal is to enroll in a community college where he would like to learn more about plants, and which plants are beneficial to the American diet. It has been a very special experience for me to work with Rudy and I have learned much from him.
