Thanks to Joey Moore in DeKalb for nominating Lois!
Through the COVID-19 pandemic, Lois has worked tirelessly as a volunteer for multiple agencies like Barb Food Mart and Network of Nations.

Lois’ leadership was instrumental in moving Barb Food Mart into a drive-thru service during the pandemic. She also helped to open the new intercultural market hosted by the Network of Nations. Lois is a school librarian at Jefferson Elementary, working daily to support students, families and teachers. She is also on the Jefferson Elementary PTA Board. Lois has a true spirit of volunteerism and gives back to her community in everything that she does.
