APPLETON — The Appleton Area School District will partner with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to provide a coordinator to oversee 1,000 school volunteers, including about 500 in formal tutoring and mentoring programs.

Linda Dawson, assistant superintendent for school services, said the partnership, which involves Thrivent loaning the full-time services of Debra Schroeder, vice president of chapter and member engagement, for the next 18 months, will be a winning proposition for both Thrivent and the district."
