Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County President Bob Garfinkel plans to still be a major part of the organization he helped create even after he steps down from the post at the end of the year. Over 300 people have enrolled in tutoring classes provided by Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County in the 12 years Garfinkel guided the organization. Celebrating with students as they became official U.S. citizens is among the many highlights Garfinkel was able to experience.
Garfinkel says he will remain on the organization’s board of directors and continue to chair one of its major committees. Earlier this fall, University of Wisconsin- Green Bay Chief of Staff Ben Joniaux was elected as Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County’s new president.
