Posted By Ashlee Tolbert, Chair Greenville Literacy Association Board of Directors, Monday, August 20, 2018
Greenville Literacy Association’s Board of Directors announced the acceptance of the voluntary resignation of Executive Director Jocelyn Slaughter effective August 24, 2018.
“Jocelyn has accepted a local opportunity that will not only allow her to continue to serve those needing a second chance but also to spend more time with her family,” said Ashlee Tolbert, Greenville Literacy’s board president. “I would like to thank Jocelyn for her hard work and commitment while at GLA. I have enjoyed working closely with her and I wish her nothing but success in all of her endeavors. She will be missed.”
In a statement, Slaughter said, “I am honored to have been chosen in 2016 as the Executive Director of Greenville Literacy Association, an organization dedicated to changing lives through the power of adult education and literacy. I am confident that the organization is in good hands and will continue to serve those needing its services.”
Tolbert added, “There is never a perfect time for transition, but our organization is equipped to navigate this change. Our donors, partners, staff and board of directors appreciate Jocelyn’s service to GLA and our community.”

GLA’s Board of Directors, under Tolbert’s leadership, will begin a search for a new Executive Director and will announce its Interim Executive Director in the near future.
