(KMOV) -- A St. Charles woman is in California waiting to welcome her first grandchild - all thanks to a generous employer.
Dawn McKee left her job at St. Charles Optical to be with her daughter, and her employer encouraged her to do it. McKee's daughter is alone right now - her husband is in the military and stationed overseas. Optician Rob Miller could tell McKee was distressed about the possibility of losing her job if she left, so he made her an offer.
He told her to take a month or two off, and that her job would be there for her when she returned. Miller says he is happy to help McKee, and to support the military. That's "Good News 4 a Change."
