"Originally it was an emerging readers class," Pam Creighton, executive director of Adult Literacy Advocates of Greater Baton Rouge, said of the Senior Scholar Program.
Creighton said that funding was cut for the program for the older readers to focus on people who get their General Educational Development.
The seniors wanted to learn to read, but most of them weren't interested in getting GEDs, Creighton said.
After the funding cut, Creighton said she felt it was important to keep the class going, because the seniors were so "eager to learn. She said she wasn't going to "kick them out," because they were among the most faithful students.
Creighton found volunteers to teach the class.
Some of these people have endured lifetimes of having to cope with not being able to even read street signs, she said.
When the program moved to a different location, a teacher got on a bus with the seniors and showed them how to get to the new location, Creighton said.

These are everyday problems for thousands of people in our community, said Pam Creighton, executive director of Adult Literacy Advocates of Greater Baton Rouge, an organization that on Thursday begins its 44th year of fighting illiteracy.
Illiteracy is especially severe locally, where one in five adults cannot read above a fifth-grade level, Creighton said.
