Local media continue to highlight encore stories, profiling encore leaders and people putting their experience to work in their communities.Two recent pieces celebrate members’ work:

Florida Weekly‘s article “Aging, Still Working” quotes Encore Palm Beach County lead and career coach Rosemary Nixon, who noted: “many [people do] not want a retirement of leisure like their parents and grandparents. They wanted more for their lives in retirement.” Rosemary highlighted other Florida encore programs including Encore Tampa Bay, and previewed Encore PBC’s 2019 awards breakfast for local employers that excel in recruiting and retaining older adults, a partnership with Your Aging & Disability Center, Palm Beach State College, CareerSourcePBC, and the local human resources association.

Dayton Foundation’s Del Mar Encore Fellow Sherrè Collier, whose work supports the Brunner Literacy Center, was profiled on a local news program. Sherrè shared her own story of helping her father learn to read, and the Brunner Center’s impact on adults in the Dayton community.

Congratulations and keep sharing those stories!
