A Word From Your Emcee!

Greetings, fellow Washtenaw Literacy supporters!

I want to welcome you to the upcoming House Party. My name is David Baum; I will be your emcee for the event. I’ve had the honor and pleasure of serving as a Basic Literacy tutor since 2014 and a mentor since 2018. I’ve had a meandering career path, having been a lawyer-turned-higher-education-administrator-turned-consultant.

If you’ve been to the past couple of Galas, you’ve seen me during the Dedicated Giving portion of the evening… I was the one who told literacy-related jokes of questionable quality, causing a significant amount of eye-rolling and groaning. Hopefully, like an old restored book, you’ve recovered…

I hope you’re looking forward to the Washtenaw Literacy House Party as much as I am. Thanks in advance for your participation and support!
