All year long, WCCO-TV has given $500 checks to groups as part of our Community Spotlight Award. This week, WCCO gave that check to students at Shannon Elementary for their work making blankets for charity.
Jennifer Conroy, a fifth grade teacher at Shannon, said the school’s fifth graders have been making blankets for charity for a few years.
“We’ve worked with children’s hospitals, we’ve worked with homeless shelters, kids in foster care … so we know this is a project that we will continue to do,” she said.
Coach Of The Year
This year WCCO-TV honored Totino-Grace coach Jeff Ferguson.
His team took the jump from class 4A to class 5A football and responded with a trip to the state semifinals.
