Jann Sutkowski, retired 3M employee, is shown with first graders in Cheryl Waste's class at Liberty Ridge Elementary School, Woodbury.

She has volunteered 40 hours a year for 15 years to help students write, illustrate and publish stories, and practice math strategies and skills.

Because of her efforts 3M donated $250 to Liberty Ridge's first grade level.

"She told me her volunteering started because of 9/11 and the president urging people to volunteer in their community," Waste said. "She is a wonderful dedicated volunteer who comes to our school to help even after she has fulfilled her required hours."
