What an honor! And what an amazing teacher you must be, Kelly Holstine, to be chosen for this award.

If you're fortunate enough to have had a teacher, or several teachers who made a difference in your life, you know how important that can be. I have a long list of those who influenced my life starting with my kindergarten teacher and going all the way to college.

Kelly, thank you for making a difference every single day. Your students are lucky to have you.
