Annie is the Chapter Liaison for the Care to Learn - Nixa Chapter and has served in this role since 2013. She is also the Physical Education Teacher and Head High School Volleyball Coach for the Nixa School District. One of her favorite memories with Care to Learn was, “seeing the reaction from a high school boy when he received a new pair of shoes.”
As Liaison for the Nixa Chapter, Annie works within the Nixa School District to ensure students’ basic needs are being met and to raise funds to ensure Care to Learn – Nixa continues its mission.
