Each year, the Marion Huber Learning Through Listening awards are presented to Learning Ally members who are high school seniors with learning disabilities, in recognition of academic achievement, outstanding leadership, and service to others.
Marion Huber was a long-term and loyal donor to Learning Ally, formerly RFB&D, who was particularly committed to our expanded mission of engaging to students with learning disabilities. She observed the power of "learning through listening" to transform lives, and it was for this reason that she made an endowed gift to fund an award for students with dyslexia and other disabilities that prevent effective reading. By creating a permanent endowment, Marion Huber ensured that the work she valued during her lifetime continues today.
Offered since 1991, the awards are given to six students who are chosen by a selection committee. Learning Ally presents the three top winners $6,000 each and three special honors winners $2,000 each. The three top winners will be presented with their awards at the National Achievement Awards Gala, the culminating celebration of Learning Ally’s annual Student Success and Achievement Summit in the Spring of each year.
