By By staff reports

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Appalachian Reading Center will celebrate its 10th anniversary Saturday from 3 to 4 p.m. at the center, at 429 Third Ave., South Charleston.

The center was founded to provide specialized tutoring for students in the Kanawha Valley with a language-based learning disability or dyslexia. With a staff of 12, tutors have helped more than 450 students in the last decade. Students who have completed all 12 books of the Wilson Reading System, a program designed for dyslexic students, will be honored at the celebration with the unveiling of a plaque with their names. Artist Nancy Johnston will present a commissioned art piece that will hang near the plaque in the waiting room.
