“I would like to present the award to relief aide, Kelly Wells. Kelly has worked at Maryville for over 10 years and is loved by many students past and present. She teaches new kindergarten students how to do recess every year. She welcomes timid students and makes them feel comfortable. She has dried countless tears of 5-year-olds and tied thousands of shoes. Miss Kelly is an outstanding example of dedication and care for our students.”
