Retired Norfolk school employee gives back to Norfolk preschool
NewsChannel 3 and our community partner Southern Bank shine our spotlight on a retired Norfolk school employee named Jackie Forbes.
We received an email from Janice Jackson, one of the school's teaching assistants.
It's clear, she's more than just a librarian.
She ties shoes, wipes noses and tears, and she allows the children to sit on her lap.
She's like a grandmother to these kids and a volunteer.
The employees there say the school would not be the same without her.
And at 80-years-young, she says she has no plans of slowing down.
She says she does not know of any other place she’d rather be.
