MADISON, WI, February 25, 2016 – Congratulations to Lori Casper & Mackenzie Adams who were chosen by WKOW and WQOW, respectively, for the Jefferson Award. The Jefferson Award for Public Service is given at both national and local levels. Local winners are ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expectation of recognition. This month, the extraordinary service of Lori and Mackenzie was recognized.
Lori, Dane County Sheriff’s deputy, became a volunteer when her son, Jake, joined Special Olympics Wisconsin 17 years ago. As time passed, Lori also became a coach and has served on the Madison Polar Plunge committee since its inception in 2000.
Mackenzie is a long time volunteer at Polar Plunge events in Menomonie and Eau Claire and believes that “being a volunteer drives good work ethic”. Every year, Mackenzie works to ensure that registration at these events runs seamlessly and is truly a tremendous asset to Regional Director of Development, Karen Kraus.
Please join us in congratulating Lori and Mackenzie for a recognition that is truly well-deserved!
