Longtime executive director Linda Lytvinenko is leaving the Cape Fear Literacy Council, the non-profit announced on Wednesday, March 12.

A press release from the Council stated that Lytvinenko will leave the leadership post at the end of June.

No successor has yet been named. The Literacy Council’s board is currently putting together a search committee, according to spokesman Erin Payne.

According to the Greater Wilmington Business Journal, Lytvinenko and her husband John will be returning to the Raleigh area to be closer to his children and grandchildren.

Lytvinenko had been executive director since January 2005, succeeding founding director Billie Granger.

Founded in 1984, the Cape Fear Literacy Council provides individualized instruction to adults in reading, literacy skills and other basic subjects, primarily through the efforts of volunteer tutors. The private, non-profit agency has aided more than 3,500 adult learners in New Hanover County and the Lower Cape Fear Area.
