Jefferson Award Winner: Colleen Sowa


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - News 19 along with other community sponsors are recognizing members of our community who are making a difference in the lives of others with the Jefferson Awards for public service.

Our first winner is Colleen Sowa, who was nominated by her daughter, Noel,  because she says there is nothing her mother won't do for another person. 

Among her activities, she volunteers at the Kane Street Community Garden helping re-pot and bag up the harvest.  Colleen also teaches volunteers how to prepare those vegetables with unique recipes of her own.  She also fills in for people who need a break from taking care of a family member at home.

She's also a grandmother helping raise her grandchildren.

Watch more about Colleen Sowa in a story by Heather Armstrong in the video player to the right of this story.
