When they say Louise Radloff has broken her neck working on behalf of the Salvation Army, they mean it.
For those who don’t know Radloff well, it may seem like a shock, but to those who understand her volunteer spirit over more than four decades, particularly related to education and health, it’s perfectly acceptable.
That was the case in 2013 when Radloff suffered a broken neck in early September when she missed a step and fell off a loading dock while picking up bread for the Salvation Army. She had surgery the next day, and except for some limited range of motion, has returned to normal.
Radloff, who has served on the Gwinnett Board of Education for more than 40 years, was among the honorees on Friday at the annual “Doing The Most Good” Salvation Army luncheon at the Infinite Energy Center.
