Sturgeon Bay resident David Hirn is still finding ways to make a difference in the lives of young men and women in the area. After retiring from his role as the mental health program director for the Door County Health and Human Services Department, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College asked Hirn to use his experience and become an instructor for their general studies courses in areas like sociology and psychology. Hirn has also helped over 35 boys earn their Eagle Scout Award from Scouts USA and recently completed training to become a tutor for Literacy Door County. Whether its teaching or mentoring, Hirn relies on his background to make a difference.
Hirn says he cannot wait to tutor his first student through Literacy Door County and discover how learning English helped change their life.
