March Jefferson Award Winner: LuAnn Hjelle

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.
