Exciting News for LifeLong Learning!
Dr. Marianne Reese, founder and director of Lifelong Learning Organization of San Marcos (LLL), announced today the gift of $10,000 to the nonprofit, which has since 2014 provided ongoing educational opportunities to the San Marcos community.
Dr. Reese says the donor who wishes to remain anonymous is a retired educator who strongly believes that “education is the best way to improve the condition of the world.”
Of this donation, Dr. Reese said: “This is by far the most generous donation yet made to our organization and it ensures that we continue to offer excellence in educational opportunities to our community now through online classes and beyond.”
The mission of LLL is to enhance and enrich the interests, knowledge, and social engagement of adult residents in the greater San Marcos area through a rich spectrum of low cost/no-cost presentations, courses and workshops.
In its 6-year history, Lifelong Learning has offered classes in science, history, geography, government, literature, art, art history, and offered presentations from San Marcos officials, Texas State professors and administrators, as well as citizens steeped in specific knowledge such as on the “Camino Real.” LLL participants have even erected a spiral garden located at the San Marcos Discovery Center and attended a 6-month, joint program with the Mermaid Society SMTX held at the Root Cellar Bakery: The Stories of San Marcos - Discovering Our Town's Roots.
