Margaret Barker

Margaret Barker is the Founder of Ethos Literacy.  She did not begin her career as a literacy advocate but as an attorney. When she was in her 40s, a health condition forced her to close her law practice. She then volunteered at the community college and discovered a lifetime passion: adult literacy.  Margaret continues to devote her skills and time to Ethos Literacy’s success. Margaret has received these awards: Marietta College Distinguished Alumna Award; City of Albuquerque Mayor’s Certificate of Appreciation for Impactful Service; New Mexico Coalition for Literacy Distinguished Service Award for Adult and Family Literacy in the State of New Mexico. She is the author of Reading - You Can Do It Too! In 2017, she represented Ethos Literacy (then called Reading Works) at the Library of Congress Literacy Awards.
