Going from Reader to Leader

We know that learning works to propel learners into the future, transforming them from readers to leaders. By honing and improving the skills needed for a 21st century employee, like critical thinking, high computer proficiency and in-demand job skills, our graduates can secure their future and experience growth in the workplace.

SBLC learners come to study, but they leave with more than passing grades and a diploma: the ability to put their learning to work for life.

But don’t just take our word for it. Click here to find success stories from SBLC grads and others who say “Learning Works!” You can also find links to scholarship opportunities and other resources available to graduates and alumni here.

As we like to say, “What you learn at SBLC stays with you forever.” Do you agree?

Today’s everyday champion is Cecilia Byrd. Achieving her Maryland High School Diploma had been on Cecilia Byrd’s mind since 1992, however, watching her son walk across the stage at Digital Harbor High School followed by her other son returning home with his high school diploma sealed the deal. Ms. Byrd had seen a flyer for South Baltimore Learning Center at her church and decided that it was time for her to be an everyday champion for herself, her family, and her community. In 2013, Ms. Byrd began classes at SBLC.

While Ms. Byrd humbly explains how SBLC staff welcomed her with an open heart making her feel welcomed and appreciated, she glosses over the good cheer she brings with her when she comes in for class and tutoring. Ms. Byrd can often be found encouraging other learners and offering words of wisdom and support when needed.

After SBLC, Ms. Byrd plans to go on to college for a business degree so that she can open her own cleaning company.
