On Tuesday, April 9, 2013, the Corporation for National and Community Service, Cities of Service, the National League of Cities, and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, led the first-ever Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service. This event united mayors across the country to spotlight the impact of national service and honor those who serve.

City of Alexandria Mayor William D. Euille graciously accepted our invitation to participate and visited one of LCNV”s two classes in the City of Alexandria, at the Lincolnia Senior Center. Our Lincolnia class is broken into three small groups based on the learners’ English proficiency, and Mayor Euille took time to visit in each classroom and talk with each learner.

The City of Alexandria has been LCNV’s constant partner, contributing to the overall success of the organization, its students, and their families with over $200,000 of financial support over the course of a decade through its Fund for Human Services competitive grant program. In addition to being a reliable partner in financial support, the City of Alexandria is also a very real partner in service delivery, providing adult students with a wide variety of quality educational programs. Upon graduating from LCNV’s beginning level programs, many learners continue their education with Alexandria City Public Schools Adult Learning Center, which provides intermediate and advanced curriculum, such as GED preparation, adult high school completion, and technical skills training.

In addition to recognizing Mayor Euille at Mayors Day, LCNV will honor the City of Alexandria as one of its outstanding Community Partners at its Annual Recognition Event on Thursday, June 20, from 7 – 9 pm. Please join us for this special event!
