This Week at Rotary
Hope Restores & Tashyra Jackson
My name is Tashyra Jackson, I have been a resident of the La Crosse community for 21 years. Originally, I am a Madison, Wisconsin transplant. I am the third oldest of eight children and I moved here with my family during my junior year of high school. We have been calling this our home ever since. 

I received my bachelor's degree from Viterbo university, where I studied business and psychology.  I have a child that is currently attending elementary school in the area and my oldest who is out of school now, has done all her schooling in the La Crosse area as well. We have shared generations of our experiences over the years and each of our stories are all too similar.
Last Week at Rotary
In this presentation Audrey explained how the Franciscan Spirituality Center's programs and services impact the health and well-being of people living in La Crosse and in over 20 states and Canada. She also updated us on the Center's transition to becoming a part of the FSPA's legacy and the exciting renovations to their facility.
Audrey Lucier is the director of the Franciscan Spirituality Center in La Crosse and a member of the Downtown Rotary Club. She has advanced degrees in public health (University of Wisconsin-La Crosse) and theology (St. John's University, Collegeville, MN) and occasionally leads programs at the Center.
