As a thought leader for early literacy in Tennessee, the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF) team is available to speak at any local or statewide events to spread the message of early literacy. These events can range from local sponsoring organization meetings and fundraisers to statewide conferences and presentations. James Pond, President, and Dean Hoskins, Vice President, serve as the Foundation’s main two speakers, but other team members are available to participate on their behalf should there be scheduling conflicts.
