We did a special Second Wind Dream today.
We have a very special lady Ms. Ella Owen Reed that turned 103 today. We had a birthday blowout. We had many friends, family and special dignitaries from the community here to honor Ms. Reed.
She had special visits from Wilson County Mayor Hutto, State Representative Mark Pody, Ms. Donna Wright from Wilson County Schools, and Mr. Scott Benson from Lebanon Special School District (LSSD).
Ms. Ella is a retired school teacher from LSSD. She taught for over 35 years and never missed a day. She started teaching in the Wilson County Schools in a one room school house with eight grades all together. When she retired, she was a teacher at Byers Dowdy for the 4th grade.
Also she had surprise visits from 4 of her former students and Mr. Winfrey that was the Superintendent of the school district when she retired.
We had a wonderful gathering and shared lots of memories. Also she had several friends from her church that attended that party.
