Over 100 people honored Linda Wolfson on the occasion of her retirement from Vita Education Services on June 23, at Spring Mill Manor, Ivyland. During her 24 years at Vita, Ms. Wolfson has served as Director of Literacy and Director of Programs, before being chosen as Executive Director in 2009.
Under her leadership, Vita has expanded and grown and is now the lead literacy agency in Bucks County and the largest provider of education services in the Bucks County Correctional Facility.
Ms. Wolfson was honored by Representative Brian Fitzpatrick by being introduced on the floor of the United States House of Representatives with a tribute entered into the Congressional Record on June 25, 2018. She was presented with a United States flag, which was flown over the United States Capital in recognition of “her 24 years of visionary and passionate leadership and her impact on the community.”
The Senate of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania also recognized Ms. Wolfson for her tenure of service at Vita and her contribution toward the well-being of the community. The initiative was sponsored by Senators Bob Mensch, Stewart J. Greenleaf, Charles T. McIlhinney, Jr., and Robert M. Tomlinson.
A highlight of the celebration was the introduction of Vita Voices, one of many successful projects brought to fruition under Ms. Wolfson’s leadership. Vita Voices is a celebration of the lives of Vita’s vibrant community of students, teachers, tutors and staff. Their stories are told through their own voices, a powerful insight into their dreams, struggles, and accomplishments. Vita Voices are featured on Vita’s website as well as YouTube and Vimeo.
