Resident honored for immigrant work

Reading resident Rose Thompson recently was honored by the Immigrant Learning Center Inc. of Malden for her volunteer work with the center — helping immigrants and refugee adults learn English and enabling them to fully contribute to economic, civic, and cultural life in their communities. Students who come to The Immigrant Learning Center to learn English and hone their writing and conversation skills speak 30 languages. Thompson has been volunteering with the nonprofit organization since 2004.
