One Response to Motivation to remember MLK, Jr. Day

  1. Linda Gillespie says:

    I am so grateful to you, Amy Darnell, PH.D., for that beautiful tribute you penned to our former student, Bryn Kelly. Bryan’s mother, Donna Miller, and I have been life long friends, and I feel forever blessed for having known Bryn the two years I had him at SV. I am also grateful to you for reaching out and embracing his beautiful soul who had felt so much rejection by others. That may be the very reason you brightened our hallways and classroom for one short year. May the future give you many more opportunities to change lives.
    Respectfully yours,
    Linda Gillespie
