WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) -- It is with heavy hearts, but also great pride, that Cape Fear Literacy Council’s Board of Directors announces that our Executive Director, Linda Lytvinenko, will be leaving Cape Fear Literacy Council (CFLC) at the end of June for a very important undertaking in the Triangle area….grandkids! Linda made it perfectly clear, “For most of my life, I have made my decisions based on my work – this time, I am putting family FIRST—my husband John and I are moving to the Triangle to be with grandkids and his kids/my stepkids. We are so excited, even though leaving CFLC is very difficult for me.”

Linda leaves Cape Fear Literacy Council in a position of great strength after over nine years of dedicated service. She has paved the way for a new Executive Director to take this opportunity and Cape Fear Literacy Council to a new level. The Council just had one of our most successful Literacy Galas ever, we are undertaking a building remodel in the Red Brick Building to provide even more classroom and tutoring spaces and we are financially stable and marching forward. Board Chair, Rachel Pace, says,

“Cape Fear Literacy Council will have an easy transition. The staff members have outstanding expertise and experience and the board leadership is phenomenal. The new executive director will be able to walk into an organization where they can hit the ground running.”

We hope you will join us in wishing Linda well. We will certainly be honoring her before she leaves, and we know that Linda wants to thank the community for supporting CFLC and our work. Linda has assured us that she will work diligently with the board and the staff to keep us moving forward through the transition. The board is putting together an executive director search committee and will start the hiring process soon. Feel free to email resumes or recommendations to: search.committee@cfliteracy.org.

Inspiring leader

Linda has been a tireless advocate for people that often, have no one advocating for them. I commend her for the inspiring way she brings awareness to an issue that many never seem to ponder. We will miss you, Linda. I hope and pray that your replacement will bring as much passion as you to this worthy cause. Literacy in today´s vernacular, means so much more than reading and your efforts to expand the badnwidth of assistance in this area, has been remarkable.

A Very Sad Day....

I understand, family comes first, but Linda will be DEARLY MISSED!!!! As far as I am concerned she is and always will be CFLC!
