Judy and David Smith have resided in Gardnerville for 17 years having come here from California.
Together they have four children. David is a retired stockbroker and Judy was a teacher’s aide. Judy has been volunteering since her kids were young and David has volunteered for about five years. Both volunteer for ELS In-Home Program of Northern Nevada and Judy also volunteers at Meneley Elementary School. They both teach children and adults to learn English, and other skills, twenty or more hours a month. Judy and David like to help others and find their volunteering very rewarding, like to help others to do their best and like giving back to the community. They encourage others to donate because it makes a huge difference in the community. “The ESL program changes lives, not just in one generation but all the generations to follow”
