May Smyth receives 2019 Kiplinger Literacy Award
The Library Foundation of Martin County and Knight Kiplinger honored May Smyth as the 2019 recipient of the Kiplinger Literacy Award on Jan. 28 at Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club in Palm City.
The Literacy Award Luncheon is a highly anticipated annual event as Kiplinger, editor-in-chief of Kiplinger Publications, serves as keynote speaker and provides attendees with some of his well-informed perspectives on finance and politics.
This year, Kiplinger’s remarks to a full-capacity audience focused on the aging of the U.S. population, immigration policy and private savings rates. On accepting her award, May Smyth said she wished everyone could enjoy the benefits of literacy, regardless of their status.
