Jefferson Award Winner: Christine Kramer


Highlighting Local Volunteers

The Jefferson Awards engages the Partners in our communities to highlight local volunteers. The goal is to spotlight the great work they do and to inspire our community to put their service ideas into action.

From the 2019-2020 Honorees, a local panel of judges select one winner that will travel to the National Gala in Washington, DC. to represent Northeast Kansas.  From the nationwide winners, one will be selected for a national Jefferson Award.

In three years she’s volunteered more than 2,000 hours at Topeka Zoo. Christine Kramer is a docent at the zoo, a position she describes as being like a guide at the zoo. It’s not a paid job, all volunteer-based. If you ask Christine she’s still earning a salary, only it’s in a way you would least expect.
