Excerpt from 'Meet Your Neighbors: We name Jack and Jan Keefer as Mr. & Mrs. Lawrence Township'
Jan Keefer was modest when asked to talk about her contributions but said of her husband: “I have great admiration for Jack’s daily efforts to mentor the students he coaches, making a difference in their lives by providing the tools and life lessons for success.”
These lessons go beyond books and basketball. The Keefers consider the players extended family, and Jan has spent time tutoring several players over the years. Her own community commitment is put into action with the Lawrence Township School Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization where Jan feels she can utilize her particular talents in event planning and fundraising. Her leadership, along with the Foundation staff, board and supporters, is used to support all Lawrence students by raising funds to build confidence, expand opportunities and raise achievement levels for every student, in every school, every day.
“We can all make a difference, even if an individual can’t be a tutor or volunteer their time,” Jan said.
