From Thomas County Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP): Fifth Annual Literacy Fair Successful The Thomas County Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP) held their fifth annual Literacy Fair, Tuesday afternoon, September 20, in the parking lot of the Thomas County Public Library. Nancy Tillinghast, Director of the Public Library and chair of the local literacy program, said the Thomas County CLCP is a community group interested in combating illiteracy at home. She said the illiteracy rate is over 30% in Thomas County and CLCP is actively working to decrease that percentage and raise the level of literacy. The Thomas County CLCP was formed in 2005 to promote and support local literacy efforts with 4 main goals: (1) increase high school completion rates, (2) increase the number of GEDs attained, (3) increase enrollment in colleges and universities, and (4) increase employability skills of the workforce. The CLCP committee says they have actually seen increases in several of these areas and intend to keep the community focused on these issues. Tillinghast declared the Literacy Fair successful. “The Literacy Fair was indeed a success! People are concerned about literacy in our community. What an opportunity to share ideas and information in a festive setting. We thank everyone who participated,” she said. In the past the Literacy Fair was held in the spring but the committee moved the fair to the fall this year to coincide with the National Literacy Month of September. Melanie Comerford, a CLCP member, took the reins of chairperson for the fair this year. She said the participation and support of the community was a huge key to this year’s success. “As in the past we were able to rely on our community supporters to provide a variety of foods and ‘giveaways’ to excite and promote attendance. It worked and we’re grateful to many people for donations of time, food, exhibits, and much more,” said Comerford. “The message these participants presented was ‘reading is important’ and there are many local resources to help all individuals, regardless of age.” The participants included Archbold Memorial Hospital, Barberitos, Beef ‘o’ Brady's, Bishop Hall Charter School, Blue Bell Ice Cream, Bobby Dollar's Appliance Consultants, Boys and Girls Club, Chick-fil-A, Dairy Queen, Commercial Bank, CNS, Fielding Law Firm, Flowers Foods, Gear Up/Excel-Thomas University, Georgia Department of Labor, H & H Engraving, Jack Hadley Black History Museum, Jefferson County Warriors, McDonald's, Signs R Us, Southwest Georgia Technical College, Suzie Q's, TCCHS Mass Media Department, The Vashti Center for Children and Families, Thomas County Fire Department, Thomas County Forestry Unit and Smokey the Bear, Thomas County Health Department, Thomas County Public Library System, Thomas County Resource Center, Thomas County Schools, Thomasville City Schools, Thomasville Fire Department, Thomasville Police Department, Times Enterprise, and the YMCA. Comerford also encouraged the community to thank these supporters and participants for their contributions and for helping to promote the importance of literacy.

Future events will include the Adult Spelling Bee, Third Grade Dictionary Project, and FERST Foundation support.
Michelle M. Harner
Widener University School of Law is pleased to announce that Professor Michelle M. Harner of the University of Maryland School of Law will deliver its 2009 visiting scholar lecture at the Hotel du Pont on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Harner’s lecture, “Activist Distressed Debtholders: The New Barbarians at the Gate?” is expected to explore recent examples of debtholder activism, including Carl Icahn’s purchase of the Tropicana Resort, the formation of the Office of the CEO at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and even the U.S. government’s role in Rick Wagoner’s resignation as CEO of General Motors Corp. – and whether this type of activism enhances or impairs corporate value. Her talk is presented by Widener Law and its Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law, DuPont, and The Delaware Counsel Group LLP, Attorneys at Law, a Wilmington-based law firm that advises nationally and internationally on Delaware corporate and alternative-entity transactions. This marks the fifth year Delaware Counsel Group has been a part of the visiting scholar event at Widener. It is the first year the law school is also partnering with DuPont. The lecture will take place at 3 p.m. in the King/Sullivan room at the hotel, located at 11th and Market Streets in Wilmington, Del. U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Brendan L. Shannon will provide commentary after Harner’s remarks. Harner will first visit Widener’s Delaware campus on Monday, Nov. 16 when she gives private presentations to law students and members of the faculty. The school’s Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law, which has been instrumental in organizing her stay, strives to serve as a forum for interaction between business law scholarship and practice. The institute maintains that the law profits from actively engaging lawyers, judges, legislators and scholars who practice, study and define it. Institute Director and Ruby R. Vale Professor of Corporate and Business Law Lawrence A. Hamermesh said the school is looking forward to the events. “We hope Michelle Harner’s visit will be professionally rewarding and support our ability to continue bringing other rising corporate law scholars to Wilmington,” Hamermesh said. “The law school and the legal community will benefit from the expertise she shares, while Professor Harner will be able to get reactions to her work from attorneys and judges who are at the forefront of practice in her fields. This program is a plus for the school and the community.” “We are pleased to lend our support to a program that provides the Delaware bar with the opportunity to learn how others view our laws. Professor Harner’s presentation is particularly relevant given the current business environment,” said Ellisa Opstbaum Habbart, founding partner of The Delaware Counsel Group, LLP. Harner teaches in the areas of bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, business associations, corporate finance and governance. Her current research interests include shareholder and creditor activism and its impact on corporate value; legislative responses to serial business failures and the ethical implications of insolvency for directors, officers and other fiduciaries.
