Tutor Of The Month- Kathy Hilliard
The volunteer of the month is Kathy Hilliard of Roseland. Her ability to connect with people and her strong advocacy for education are just two of the many talents that she brought with her to Nelson County. Kathy has been an LVNC board member and a tutor, most recently at Grace Episcopal Church, for several students who love her and her best substitute companion, Pierre Constant.
