Gillett library volunteer honored
Gillett Public Library volunteer Jean Frank has been awarded the annual Harold P. Heckendorf Volunteer of the Year Award. She plans to give her $250 charity prize to the library.
The award recognizes exemplary community service and volunteerism in Oconto County. It is presented by N.E.W. Credit Union in honor of Harold Heckendorf.
Frank was nominated by teacher Victoria Britton at the Gillett School District, where Frank does reading tutoring. She also is an active member of Friends of the Gillett Library and volunteered for the Community Center/Community Square project.
“She never hesitates to volunteer when asked, whether it be to set up for a book sale with her 4-H kids, or be one of the characters in our haunted house,” library director Kay Rankel said. “We appreciate all that she does for our library and the community.”
