The Judy Coslett Learning Center

During her life, including many years in Swarthmore, the late Judy Coslett was legendary for her commitment of time and talent to the after school and summer camp programs at Chester Eastside Inc. in the city of Chester. Her 25 years as a volunteer, long appreciated, are being formally recognized this weekend as Judy is memorialized in a state-of-the-art computer center and library, to be used by students in the after school program. Access to a computer and other learning resources outside the classroom are seen as a crucial element to academic success.
