Richard Nixon was President and Vietnam War was still raging.
Love story and Patton were the top two movies.
K.C. Chiefs won the Super Bowl and the Chevy Impala was the top selling car.
And, in our eyes most importantly, Sandy Bell came to work for Stewart Home & School.
She is the heart and soul of the school and we would not be considered the best at what we do were it not for her leadership and inspiration.
Every morning for the 28 years I have been here, I have observed her incredible patience, caring, and love envelope our students in so many ways.
Whether greeting, negotiating, or consoling so many of our students who greet her each morning or going to visit a student who may be sick, Sandy lives the life of selfless care for those with and without special needs.
It is difficult to imagine where she has time to also be such a wonderful wife, devoted mother, and dutiful grandmother.
Sandy, we thank you for forty-five years of loyalty, devotion, and for being who you are each and every day. Our staff is privileged and honored to work alongside you and our students are better served and more deeply loved because of it.
We look forward to honoring you at the celebration of your 50th anniversary!
