About Joyce S. Ahern

 Joyce S. Ahern brought her considerable experience as a mother of five and dedicated elementary school teacher to Literacy Volunteers. A long-term Board Member, Joyce spent many years helping people learn to read. She had single-mindedness when she was onto something, and Literacy Volunteers was a direct beneficiary of her persistence.

Joyce was passionate about Literacy Volunteers. She could always be counted on for her strong and immediate focus, her willingness to raise funds and to work long hours.   She also had an uncanny ability to recruit volunteers. Her children were not exempt from her passion. Reading time was always a priority in her family’s home.
