Elizabeth Jackson

• Occupation: A retired VISD elementary school teacher

• Hometown: Victoria

• Why honored: My hero is Elizabeth Jackson, a VISD retired teacher. She most certainly gives back to her community by volunteering at the Victoria Christian Assistance Ministry, 108 N. Liberty St. Jackson is there five days a week taking food and clothes donations and helping wherever she is needed. This organization has many wonderful volunteers, but Mrs. Jackson is the only one that I know who is there every day. VCAM gives food, clothing and personal needs items to those who are in need in our community. Member churches give donations, with the help of H-E-B, to this wonderful ministry. Thank you, Elizabeth Jackson, for all you do for others. You set such a fine example for others to follow.
