Letter from the President

Eddie Marshall

It is with great pleasure that I bring you greetings from the South Carolina State Council of the International Reading Association. Reading Matters is a wonderful publication. Sarah Hunt-Barron and Jacquelynn Malloy, co-editors, and their committee have done an outstanding job in producing this professional journal. We are proud of this effort and appreciate the diligent work of the many contributors. As you enter the literacy work zone, you will find these articles inspiring and useful in your classrooms and educational settings. SCIRA and ILA work to provide opportunities for professional development through annual conferences, a literacy workshop, newsletters, journals, and websites. SCIRA encourages its members to continue to grow professionally by applying for various scholarships and grants. You can find more information about these opportunities at our website, www.scira.org . Mark your calendar for the 41st annual SCIRA conference, Literacy Work Zone: Construction Underway, scheduled for February 25-27, 2016 at the Marriott Resort, Hilton Head, SC. Cathy Delaney and her committees are working very diligently to provide an outstanding conference program this year. Be sure to renew your SCIRA and ILA memberships to keep abreast of the latest trends in promoting literacy.
