Foster Grandparent, Lois Velzke

Lois Velzke is a retired school principal who wanted to continue making a difference in the lives of students. She is now a Foster Grandparent and is regularly uplifted by the positive results of her efforts.

She remembers one student she helped who “was not able to focus on his assignments, was relying on his classmates to keep up, and could not complete assignments on time. After learning to listen to directions and ask questions, his outlook improved and he became an above average student who is really proud of his work. Now he is able to complete his assignments and knows how to seek help with any problems. I am so pleased to have been a part of his becoming a more productive, happier student."
