Well-deserved honor for a former colleague

IT WAS WITH MORE than a little bit of pride that we reported on the newest Plymouth High School Wall of Fame honorees.

The latest class of inductees included James Hemauer of the Class of 1973, who turned a swimming accident in high school that left him paralyzed into a lifetime commitment to help other disabled students receive their college degrees; and William Miller of the class of 1980, who turned his love of the outdoors into a career as a writer, magazine editor, book author, national TV host, hunting and firearms blogger and much more.

They add to the distinguished list of alumni, but it was third designee who made us especially proud.

It was one of our own Review alumni, Nancy Jusky.

Jusky spent more than three decades working here, as a sales representative, then as sales manager and finally as sales/community relations director.

Her work here was worthy of recognition to our minds, but she is being honored by the school district for much more – her decades of dedication to her hometown.

Jusky served on a number of government bodies through the years – the Plan Commission (where she helped develop the city’s long-range master plan), the Utilities Commission and more.

She also served the school district on citizen committees for the Riverview Middle School remodeling and the construction of Horizon

Elementary School – even suggesting the name for Horizon Elementary.

But she also served the community in many different ways beyond that which left a lasting imprint on Plymouth.

Jusky was involved – beyond just simply being a member in name only – in the Jaycettes, the Chamber of Commerce and the Plymouth Historical Society, contributing greatly to a number of different projects and initiatives for each of those groups.

She was committed to the city’s park system and left her mark there as well. She helped develop the Stayer Junior Park in downtown and, through the Safe Play Committee, was instrumental in creating a new playground area that is one of the highlights of the city’s main park, City Park on Suhrke Road.

After leaving The Review, she continued her public service efforts by serving as marketing coordinator for the United Way of Sheboygan County. She helped effectuate the merger of the Plymouth and Sheboygan United Ways to create the larger organization and was a key part of its phenomenal growth over the last decade-plus.

All in all, it’s a remarkable record of service and dedication to her hometown, worthy of the recognition it has received.

From your former colleagues here at The Review, congratulations, Nancy, on a well-deserved and hard-earned honor.
