Jefferson Award winners honored at banquet

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Thursday night, a special "thank you" went out to volunteers who make our community what it is. 

Each month Eau Claire's Own News 18 along with Marshfield Clinic recognize one winner of the Jefferson Award for Public Service, but Thursday night twelve were honored.

At the third annual Jefferson Awards Banquet the winners from the past year were honored for their volunteer spirit.

Each individual story was shown and they received a gold medal.

One winner, Tom Leuck, organizer of special kids day, was chosen to represent our area in Washington D.C. for the national Jefferson Award Ceremony this summer.

"The saying goes 'ordinary people doing extraordinary things' and I've got to tell you, it just seemed like something that's just natural to do," said Leuck. "I'm sure that's true with everybody here. It's just something you want to do to help others, it's no big deal."
