Doris Palmer, a devoted volunteer for the Hazel Grove Elementary library media center, won the Greater Kansas City Association of School Librarians Friend of the Library Award. She will be honored on May 2 at the organization’s spring banquet.
Mrs. Palmer has been volunteering at Hazel Grove since the 2005-2006 school year and began volunteering when her grandchildren attended the school. Although her grandchildren, Cori and Cody Corrado, now a junior at Lee’s Summit North High School and an eighth-grader at Bernard Campbell Middle School, have moved on, Mrs. Palmer continues to be a weekly volunteer in the library media center. Her husband, Richard, also volunteers and helps each year with the book fair.
