A Holmen man will represent this area at the national Jefferson Awards ceremony in Washington D.C. in June.

Bob Milisch received that honor Thursday night at the Annual Jefferson Awards banquet in La Crosse.

The Jefferson Awards are earned for significant community service.

He spent 25 years as a respiratory therapist, working mostly with children. But went above and beyond his job helping families cope.

Every year, WXOW and sponsor Altra Federal Credit Union invites Jefferson winners to attend a dinner with their families as a way to thank them for their volunteerism and service.

Piggy's has served the dinner the past four years.

On Monday, April 20, WXOW will air a half hour program honoring our winners from the past year at 6:30 p.m.

If you know someone who should receive recognition for their community service, you can make a nomination at the Jefferson Awards section on our website. You can also view the stories of the incredible volunteers who live in this area.
