Washington, DC (WXOW) -

Each month, WXOW receives nominations for the Jefferson Award.  That award is earned through significant community service.  

In April each year, we invite monthly Jefferson winners to a banquet where we reveal an overall winner who represents this area in Washington, D.C. at the national awards ceremony.  This year, that person is Jim Cappuccio.

Cappuccio is a retired physical education teacher who focused on adaptive sports.  His work continues in the La Crosse area.  He spoke during the national ceremony Thursday, June 22.
