FDL Literacy Services Welcomes New Coordinator
Fond du Lac Literacy Services has hired a new top manager. Jen Mattice joined the nonprofit organization on October 6 as literacy coordinator.
Mattice has a degree in Elementary Education from UW-Oshkosh. While serving as a middle school literacy teacher in Berlin, Mattice created a literacy program that served about 300 students a year. As an expert in literacy with a background in nonfiction curriculum, Mattice says she is passionate about helping life-long learners reach their goals.
“I’m delighted to become part of a vital program for adult literacy,” Mattice said. “Fond du Lac Literacy Services has a successful history of helping people meet their academic and personal goals. I’m encouraged that our tutors and volunteers devote their time to make a difference in peoples’ lives and that our students want a better future.” She adds, “Plus, I’ve always wanted to work in a library.”
Mattice lives in Oshkosh with her husband, son, daughter and dog. Outside of work, she enjoys time with family and time outdoors hunting, running and boating.
Literacy Services Board President Doris Grajkowski said, “Jen brings a background and the skills needed to support the goal of Literacy Services, which is to help adults improve their own literacy. We look forward to working with Jen in this important role.”
