I Am Hamilton - Bill Laubscher
Posted on 12/13/2019
Today, the “I am Hamilton” video feature spotlights Bill Laubscher, a grandparent and volunteer at Wolftever Creek Elementary School. Laubscher loves volunteering at Wolftever Creek to spend time with his grandchild and make a difference in the school.

“I am Hamilton” spotlights the contributions of alumni, teachers, parents, students, support workers, and community members in providing opportunities for children in the classrooms of Hamilton County Schools. Better opportunities for children today mean a brighter future filled with possibilities for our graduates, their families, and the community.

“Bill Laubscher is amazing! He works full time, but still makes time on his days off to volunteer at our school,” said Mallary Netterville, an educational assistant at Wolftever Creek Elementary. “He has helped us build a shed for our outdoor classroom, volunteered in the book fair, helped in the volunteer room by cutting and copying things for teachers. He is always willing to help on his off days from work.”

“I am really close to my grandchildren and I try to stay involved with what they do, and sometimes that involves volunteering at school,” said Laubscher. “I got to be involved in building the outdoor classroom, and I am excited for my grandchild to get to use it and to learn how things grow.”

Laubscher can be seen doing just about anything and everything that needs to be done at Wolftever Creek Elementary. “My favorite thing to do is work in the Book Fair,” he said. “It is great to see how excited children are to get their books and take them home. You don’t have to be an expert or have any super ability. You just need to be willing to show up.”
