A retired Springfield couple is working to make a difference in the lives of local preschoolers. KSMU’s Michele Skalicky visited the classroom where they volunteer each week to help the children learn.
There’s no shortage of hugs in the Wonder Years classroom at York Elementary when Gee and Jim Williams-Stiles walk in the door once a week.
As Gee talked to the kids, one little girl with a purple hair tie holding back her dark hair suddenly got up and gave her a hug. And that wasn’t the only one given that day.
