Grandma Carol to the Rescue!

Carol Barsness is a 3 year Foster Grandparent at Lowell Elementary School in NE Brainerd. Carol volunteers 20 hours a week tutoring and mentoring children at the school. For National Volunteer Recognition Week, the children made her a poster showing her as SUPER Grandma Carol and thanking her for her help. The staff at Lowell Elementary love Carol and wish they had more Foster Grandparents to serve their students and help them reach their full academic and social potential. For Carol, she says the children give her a reason to get up every day because she knows she is making a difference!
