31 Dec Adult Education Programs Recognizes Departing Staffer
Earlier this month, the Adult Education Program recognized Richard Partee’s service to Hope at a holiday luncheon. Adult learners were guests of honor. While the event was held to celebrate these members of the Hope community, it also served to pay tribute to one of the program’s most valuable assets. Richard has served as learner affairs coordinator since September of 2017. He was on assignment at Hope through a special memorandum of understanding with the Philadelphia Mayor’s Commission on Aging. Hope serves as a host training site for the agency’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). The program is the only federal program targeted to help older workers. “Each year, SCSEP enables thousands of low-income seniors to earn and learn while working in local programs serving their community,” the program’s website reads.
Over the last year, Richard became a familiar face throughout the entire organization. Richard received recognition for emulating the core values of Hope Partnership. All of the adult learners have relied on Richard for his unconditional support, guidance, and leadership. He helped play an important role in maintaining academic excellence among our learners, all balanced with a compassionate demeanor. Richard is off to his next assignment, and will surely be missed by all here at Hope.
