The Vandalia Leader recognizes the “Person of the Week” that has been nominated by the readers. The criteria is someone that is giving back by being a productive and caring member of the community.
This week’s “Person of the Week” is Mrs. Jill Trower.
She is a second grade teacher at Van-Far Elementary and has been teaching for 10 years. Trower  is also a member of the Van-Far Teachers Association (VFTA) and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). She has also coached basketball in the past.
“I just love working with kids and I love working with the people at this school. I’m a people person, so I like to help people who are in need,” Trower said.
Outside of school, Trower is the leader of the children and youth ministries at Curryville Baptist Church.
