Volunteer of the Week
Dr. Barbara Newborg
Augustine Literacy Project
 

 
To paraphrase Debbie McCarthy, its Executive Director, Dr. Barbara Newborg is one of the Augustine Literacy Project’s most important resources.  At the age of 84, after
a distinguished career in medicine at Duke, Dr. Newborg turned her attention to disadvantaged, struggling readers and trained to become a tutor.  Ten years later, she
continues this work in myriad ways, by educating and recruiting others to be Augustine trainers and tutors, by her generous philanthropic support, and by serving as a mentor to the Project’s executive director.  At a time in her life when she could have rested on her laurels, she devoted herself to bettering her community, both by volunteering with the
Augustine Literacy Project and through her dynamic work with many local non-profit agencies.  Thank you, Dr. Newborg, for your selfless dedication and for providing a
model that we would all be proud to emulate.
