Shalom has worked with adult education and literacy for almost 25 years, four of those years as a volunteer. She also started a successful ESOL program in Raleigh County, assisted with establishing volunteer literacy programs in West Virginia correctional centers, and is under contract with the Department of Education to train other adult education instructors. Shalom has received the West Virginia Adult Education Teacher of the Year award, as well as awards from both Governors Caperton and Underwood. She and some of her students were instrumental in the successful effort with the legislature to establish free testing for high school equivalency candidates. Tues. May 2, 2017 Hinton NeWS - 5 Austin Persinger, director of the Summers County Public Library, said "under Shalom's guidance and enthusiasm, the adult education program at the library is considered to be one of the best in the state. Shalom has always approached every new task with a sense of humor, every challenge as an opportunity, and every student with an unparalleled dedication to helping him or her obtain educational and career goals. We will miss her." Shalom will continue to be active in the community with the Summers County Huddle, a group of concerned residents formed to ensure that government policies and actions reflect the values of a democratic society. Shalom noted, "unfortunately, I cannot do justice to both adult education and working with the Huddle group. But I believe that this country is now at a crossroads and whether we continue to be a country that fS inclusive, provides opportunities for all ofits residents, and protects democratic principles is in jeopardy. I am extremely thankful to have worked in adult education and grateful to my students who have taught me far more than I could teach them about commitment, determination, and hope."
