A Moment in the Life of an LVG Tutor

A Story of Success

Veteran tutor Christine McGrath of Litchfield shares information at a 2010 tutor training session with Rick Slivka of New Milford in foreground, and Randy DiPentima of Kent and Jay Frank of New Preston at left. LVG tutors come from 19 surrounding communities.

Connecticut’s first Iraqi refugees — Board member and veteran tutor Sue McWhinnie, far right, shares a moment with Dr. Nafie Abtan and his wife, Suahair al Shammari, who were brought to this country by IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigration Services, based in New Haven) and tutored by LVG. Special thanks are due to the Brookfield Congregational Church, which sponsored the family.
