In Memoriam: Airel Louis Mitcham
It is with great sadness that we closed out 2015 with the passing of Airel Mitcham. Airel was not only dedicated to his wife, Monica Thompson, and extensive family, but gave tirelessly to his community. 
Among his civic roles, Airel was a beloved classroom volunteer and Money Coach with Make A Difference - Wisconsin. His lively classroom lessons will not be forgotten by our organization or the many teens whom he impacted.
