Faye Scher, of the Village of Gilchrist, gives her time as a kindergarten tutor at Wildwood Elementary School with Tutors 4 Kids, an organization dedicated to helping students in Lake, Sumter and Marion counties.

She heard Wildwood Elementary School was a D-rated school when she moved to The Villages and instantly wanted to help.

“I always knew I wanted to volunteer once I retired,” Scher said. “It didn’t matter if it was with the SPCA or a library, I just wanted to help the community. Tutoring at the school is the perfect option for me.”
