MANLY, Iowa – Each month, KIMT News 3, along with our Giving Your Best partners, Diamond Jo Casino and First Citizens Bank, honor someone who goes above and beyond to give back to the community.
Denise Roegner is our October Giving Your Best Volunteer of the Month.
“Denise is a grandma of two of our kiddos here at the school. And she works with the PTO,” said Paula Beyer, the secretary at Central Springs Elementary School.
“I like to help out and I wasn’t expecting anything like this,” said Roegner.
From cooking meals for the staff during parent-teacher conferences, to wrapping gifts during the holidays, to baking tasty treats for the kids, Roegner spends much of her free time helping out at the school.
“So many of the young mothers work nowadays. And I said they need a bigger grandparent brigade! So I refer to myself as the grandma brigade for the PTO,” Roegner said.
“It makes a huge difference. And she’s just gone above and beyond any PTO role that she could do and she’s just awesome,” said Beyer.
“Thank you so much, I was very shocked, very shocked,” Roegner said.
