Warwas presents Bell Award to Salazar

 

The Cuero High School bell ceremony was held May 22. The ceremony allows the top ten graduates to recognize an educator of their choice. Following is Anni Warwas’ dedication speech.
 
When I started thinking about who should receive my bell, many wonderful people came to mind. One person stood out, a person who would be thrilled and overjoyed to be honored in such a way. A very deserving woman who has given this school many years. 
 
She has been a great part of my last year here and we all used to say we hated her. But spending an hour or more with her every day has really made us close.

The clinic was led by Jill Crain with 26 dancers ranging in age from 3-10 years. “The girls learned a little about dance and etiquette, a little about Jesus, and a little about giving to those in need,” Crain said.
