Linda Lytinenko, executive director of the Cape Fear Literacy Council, announced this week she’ll be stepping down at the end of the June.

Lytinenko, who said she’s retiring to spend more time with her grandchildren, has been the literacy council’s executive director for the past nine years.

“For most of my life, I have made my decisions based on my work,” Lytinenko said. “This time, I am putting my family first. My husband John and I are moving to the Triangle to be with the grandkids and his kids, my stepkids. We are so excited, even though leaving CFLC is very difficult for me.”

Cape Fear Literacy Council Board Chairwoman Rachel Pace said under Lytinenko’s leadership, the literacy council just had one of its most successful fundraising events.

“The council just had one of our most successful literacy galas ever,” Pace said. “We are undertaking a building remodel in the Red Brick Building to provide even more classroom and tutoring spaces and we are financially stable marching forward.

“Cape Fear Literacy Council will have an easy transition. The staff members have outstanding expertise and experience and the board leadership is phenomenal. The new executive director will be able to walk into an organization where they can hit the ground running.”

The board of directors is assembly a search committee for a new executive director and will begin the hiring process soon. Email resumes or recommendations to search.committee@cfliteracy.org.
