ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) She spent a career teaching children. When she retired, the transition was a challenge. So LuAnn Hjelle decided to return to the classroom, as a volunteer.
For the past five years, she’s read to children at the Onalaska Kindergarten Center every Friday. For her efforts, Hjelle is the Jefferson Award winner for March 2014.
If you know a volunteer you believe makes a difference in the community, you can nominate him or her for a Jefferson Award.
