Award honors local volunteers for their service to our community
Laura is an EMT for Norton King’s Daughter Hospital, spending countless hours at car accidents, suicides, overdoses, and other medical emergencies. A wife, mother of six children, and grandmother of 5, with a full-time job, Laura manages to find time to volunteer within the Salvation Army's many programs, including serving as a youth leader for at-risk females between 6th & 12th grades.
She also served as a child advocate for Voices for Children for three years in Jefferson County, IN, and is an active member at The Well Community Church in Cross Plains, IN. Despite her own health challenges with Parkinson’s Disease and being a breast cancer survivor, you’ll find Laura organizing/attending cancer rallies and runs to support that mission or many others.
