The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County is proud to announce Kelli Metzenthin as the organizations new executive director. Kelli is a Fort Bend County native and an active community volunteer. She brings over 12 years of experience in business financials, fundraising and non-profit development.
“The Literacy Council is a wonderful organization- it’s all about building a better community and helping people help themselves,” says Metzenthin. “It is also about families and children in our community. When adults are motivated to better their life skills, they set examples for their children and pave the way for the next generation of adults and leaders.”
Kelli looks forward to using her skills and experience to benefit the many adult learners at the Literacy Council, bring even greater awareness to literacy issues, and increase volunteer activities in the Fort Bend County area.
Metzenthin enjoys growing organic vegetables, cooking with her husband and playing with her dog, Frankenstein. She currently serves as an Exchange Club of Fort Bend board member.
