Anne Kelly, Adult Literacy Coordinator, (541) 506-6043

Anne joined Gorge Literacy as the Adult Literacy Coordinator in September of 2013. She is responsible for managing the program for both The Dalles and Hood River campuses. Anne’s role touches on all aspects of the program, assessing learners and matching them to volunteer tutors, recruiting and training tutors, gathering submissions from new writers and publishing Shared Voices, an annual collection of writings by Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) student authors. As a certified Oregon teacher, Anne is passionate about helping learners reach their goals and realize their potential within their family, work and community lives.

After moving to The Dalles in 2002 to take over her husband’s family wheat farm, Anne has been amazed at the impact volunteers can have in a small community. In addition to teaching, she has volunteered on the board of Wonderworks Children’s Museum of the Gorge and also has been elected a member of the Dufur School Board of Directors. When Anne isn’t enjoying time with her two children and husband, she is an avid tennis player, skier and loves taking advantage of the beauty of the Columbia Gorge.

Kelly Wiley, Instructional Assistant, (541) 308-8243

Since 2005, Kelly has had three assistant positions at the same time: Gorge Literacy, Pre-college/GED and High School Completion programs. Since 1992 she has also held positions at Parkrose School District and Hood River School District as a Special Education assistant. She is responsible for clerical work, match meetings, testing and interaction with our literacy learner. Her many jobs have enabled her to learn so much about the operation of a community college and the many resource’s available to our community.

Kelly says, "the best part of working for CGCC is the mutual respect the staff has for one another. The management work hard to know the staff personally. I have always had an extreme passion for all students who want to learn and better themselves. Helping them and seeing them become successful is so rewarding. On my off time I love to cook and baby my house plants. I am one of the lucky people who can honestly say I have always had a job I love to go to."
