3rd Grade Grandma JoAnn
JoAnn Douglas has been a foster grandma volunteer at Central Lyon for many years, all of that time helping the third grade students and teachers.
She was born in Rock Rapids in 1935 and has lived here all her life. She has two daughters (both graduates of Central Lyon) and five grandsons. When JoAnn’s husband passed away in 1977 she went to work at Central Lyon as a cook. After she retired, she found that she missed school so much that she decided to return as a grandma!! JoAnn was also very involved with the girl scouts program for 25 years.
JoAnn is great with special projects and is a loving addition to the children's school day. We love having her share our day and hope she continues to volunteer for many more years.
