Ms. Laurie teaches in the special education program. She works patiently with students until they get what she is teaching them. She is loving, kind and always smiling. Other students that are not in her classes come to her for help. She also works tirelessly with the MCJROTC program at Hendersonville High School. Most weekends she is at a Raider, drill or marksmanship competition helping and cheering her “kids” on. She saw a need for students that couldn’t afford dress attire for prom or banquets and started a clothes closet that allows all students to borrow formal wear and be included in these events. Her students will be impacted far beyond their high school years.
