Assistant Village Manager of Carpentersville, Joe Wade, made a surprise visit to Lakewood School on October 29 to present Laura Factly with the Village of Carpentersville’s 2014 Community Service Award.
The Community Service Award, sponsored by the Northern Kane County Chamber of Commerce, recognizes an individual who has gone above and beyond to give back to the community.
Factly, who has volunteered in District 300 for eight years reading to students and working in the library, has made a tremendous impact on both students and staff.
“Laura has positively impacted hundreds of children in our community,” says Lakewood School Teacher Kelly Uehlein. “She is a dedicated volunteer who motivates young students to enjoy reading. Her positive energy and love for reading is contagious to the students around her.”
