What a wonderful lady! She helped me through my first year at WES and continued to be a great resource for many years after. When Don Felix was absent she ran the school. She was an extremely well organized and efficient leader in our building. I will miss my weekly visits with her at the nursing home. We would rehash many school stories and end with a belly laugh. Take care Holley Family!!!
