Honoree: Helene Chaban

Honored by: Newport/Mesa Proliteracy

Cause Area: Education

Helene joined our program just two years ago as a volunteer tutor. In this time, she has taken on more and more responsibility. Helen began in the program by tutoring one adult learner. Soon, she took on another and another; teaching them not only literacy skills but changing their lives with her life skills lessons and friendship. In 2015, Helene stepped up to chair our annual fundraising event, The Gift of Literacy Luncheon. Her calm leadership and innate style inspired the committee and the community to support Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, making the 2015 luncheon one of our most successful. Helene has not stopped here… always looking for the next mountain, she has now started to volunteer at the Friends of the Library bookstore where she will make a huge impact. Helene has been a terrific asset to our program in so many ways. Her leadership, enthusiasm, and calm under pressure is a lesson to all of us to be the best we can in whatever we do.
