Remembers Wood Fest Royalty

(06/04/2009)

Dear Editor,

This week when I opened the HurHerald article about this year's Queen Flora contestants, my heart just melted.

Three of the five lovely young women that were contestants are little ladies that I knew many years ago when I was a kindergarten teacher at Pleasant Hill Elementary.

Chelsea Ball, Leslie Garrett, and Trenda Jo Overbay were all students of mine.

Oh my, aren't they lovely now.

I always knew that they were lovely on the outside and also on the inside. It warms my heart when I see my former students. These three girls were little darlings then and I am sure they are still the same.

I just want them to know that I will always cherish the memories that I shared with them during the year that I was their kindergarten teacher.

I am proud of you, and I hope that you will always be proud of yourselves.
