The mission of this organization is to promote literacy by providing quality educational services to meet the needs of the community.

  • On February 22, we will host the 25th Annual Rotary Spelling Bee for Literacy at the Gilmer Civic Center. The $12 ticket includes a Fried catfish, prepared on site by Catfish Express, or chicken strips, with all the trimmings including apple cobbler and drinks. We are very grateful to announce that Etex Telephone and Upshur Rural Electric Coop are underwriting the cost of the meal again this year. The Gilmer Rotary Club has hosted the Spelling Bee for all these years and we are pleased to have a special event sponsor this year - Yazell Chevrolet.


  • 2018 marks our 30th anniversary of serving the area by providing literacy, GED preparation, and basic skills instruction, including reading, math and writing skills.

  • GED preparation in all subject areas is free of charge. The test includes Reasoning in Language Arts Reading and Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.

  • There have been a few changes to the GED test, and we are continuing to help our students improve in every subject day by day.

  • There will be live and silent auctions, raffles and the main event, which is the fun and competition of the Spelling Bee. We are looking forward to this year’s event and hope it will be the best Bee yet!

Sponsored by the Gilmer Rotary Club and Yazell Chevrolet
