It's National School Volunteer Week, so we would like to highlight Janelle Leiseth and the Moorhead Legacy Education Foundation board. Take a look at what Janelle has to say about her experience volunteering and MLEF! 👇 “My favorite part of volunteering for MAPS is meeting other dedicated parents and guardians who are passionate about service to the community and the schools. I love working with an engaging board of directors at MLEF and learning about each of their personal connections to Moorhead Schools; it has been so uplifting and inspirational. Collectively, they bring a strong desire to help MAPS in transformational ways. The most fulfilling part of volunteering, and especially in working with MLEF, is knowing a difference is being made in the lives of others and seeing that impact.” - Janelle Leiseth, MLEF Chair Want to get involved?
