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.
