AAPS Link: Lawton students applaud longtime volunteer on her 90th birthday

Ginny Hartog turns 90 in a few days. And what better way to celebrate than by walking through the halls of Lawton Elementary as students applaud and wish her well?

Hartog has been volunteering at Lawton once or twice a week for 25 years.  Once a week she helps Jinx Cook’s fourth graders become better readers, and once a week she reads to the students in Jenny Szalay’s kindergarten class.

“It’s fun!” says Hartog, when asked for the bottom-line reason she’s been helping children with their reading for so long.
