Congratulations Grandma Dianne! FRIENDS OF EDUCATION were honored at a celebration in Thief River Falls. Lake of the Woods School Teachers picked Dianne Turgeon to receive this honor. Dianne lives in the Baudette area. She volunteers her time as “Grandma Dianne” to Kindergarten students. She enjoys listening to them read, helps them learn how to tie their shoes, and assists with getting them dressed for outside play. She has a special way to give the right amount of hugs to make them feel special. Dianne has been volunteering with the Tri-Valley Foster Grandparent Program for five years. She has impacted over two hundred students with her kind and gentle guidance. We appreciate her dedication to children! She also received an apple for the honor of being a “Friend of Education 2014” from the Kramer-Brown 10.
