Meet Charlene Maxwell……volunteer extraordinaire!

She began volunteering at Taft when her Great Granddaughter was in Kindergarten – that was seven years ago!

She is referred to by the staff and students as Grandma.

Grandma is our Gal Friday. She runs copies, does laminating, takes care of students who need a fresh change of clothes, helps sort mail, delivers papers & packages to classrooms and is the official dispenser of hugs!

Ms. Maxwell is a retired ER nurse, and her second retirement was from Meijer’s.

She has two grown sons, a daughter, four grandchildren, and 4.5 great-grandchildren... and her 300+ grandkids from Taft!
