I am so proud of you and your accomplishments!!! I wish you the best of luck at state! You have come so far since that day I met you when I came with Mrs. Parnell to your house to work with you before you started school! Of course, I hope you go to Tech because that is where went to school. God bless you always!
Mrs. Kay Smith
