December 26, 2012

Betty Jorissen, who volunteers to listen to students read at Jefferson Elementary School, said good-bye to her students for a few months last week.

Jorissen’s last day volunteering for the year was Tuesday, and the students had their last day of school Friday, but Jorissen won’t return right away in the new year.

“We just had a tearful goodbye because I go away for the winter,” she said. She heads south from January through March.

But Jorissen plans to return as long as she’s able.
