I used to work at LHS and there is one person there that goes above and beyond expectations. She is a para-professional in the severe multiple disabilities classroom and spends countless hours off the clock to help these students. Her name is Kate Guard. Please someone nominate her. I would if I still lived/worked in Lawrence.
