Students at Windsor Elementary School joined Dane County Sheriff Deputies to help with Justice for a Cure. The non-profit was started by former Deputy Joan Kamholz, who has taken her fight to find a cure for cancer to fellow sheriff’s officials around the country.
WES students helped by decorating large ribbons for display in various locations throughout Dane County. The project began with Windsor school counselor Stefanie Mueller discussing the Justice for a Cure project with students during their Life Skills classes. Student Council Advisers, Kelly Fencl and Chris Carlson also helped students to create and decorate the ribbons. Each class decorated differently colored ribbons, each representing a type of cancer.
On February 2, Windsor Elementary School Student Council officers presented the ribbons to Dane County Sheriff Deputies and Joan Kamholz. “What a great way for the schools and students to get involved with the law enforcement family and the community, for such a great cause that has affected so many,” said Dane County Deputy John Nelson.
The deputies divided up the ribbons and placed them on display in various locations across Dane County, including Sheriff Department Office buildings, and Gilda’s Club.
