Our Savior Lutheran Schools will be honoring the memory of Mary Jo Janowsky by holding a scholarship barbecue fundraiser.

Mary Jo longed for an opportunity to combine her love of early childhood literacy education with the freedom to instruct children in the Christian faith, which had given her own life its passion and meaning.

Our Savior Lutheran School in Pagosa Springs was blessed to have her as a teacher. She taught there until her death at age 77.  All monies raised on Saturday, Aug. 9,  at 2 p.m. at Our Savior Lutheran School will pay for the tuition of children who cannot otherwise afford to attend Our Savior Lutheran School’s kindergarten or first grade.
