Air date: 10/16/2017

Ruth Richardson’s work through Volunteers in Tutoring Adult Learners (VITAL) at the Monroe County Public Library is a welcoming embrace to new members of the Bloomington community. After 30 years as a public school teacher, Ruth continues to live her passion by teaching adults English. Ruth’s work with these adults affords them not only increased self-sufficiency, but also removes barriers to their full participation in the community. Ruth’s incredible teaching and personality are encouraging and empowering to her students. Ruth also creates teaching materials and offers invaluable advice to VITAL staff and volunteers. Her efforts make VITAL a better program and encourage participation in Bloomington’s civic life by its new citizens.
