2017 Volunteer of the Year, Mr. Joslyn


Mr. Joslyn received the 2017 Volunteer of the Year Award sponsored by the Effingham Teutopolis News Report.  In addition to shelving nearly 2200 books a week, Mr. Joslyn assists with cataloging, processing new books, inventory, and keeping the data base up to date.  However, the real difference he makes is in the interaction with the students.  He listens carefully to their interests and eagerly recommends a book they are sure to like.  His smile is infectious.  If anyone is having a “bad” day, Mr. Joslyn’s smile will turn their frown into a grin.  

Mr. Joslyn also volunteers at the HSHS Hospital, First Presbyterian Church, Effingham Band Boosters and the Salvation Army as a bell ringer.
