School Board Names Indian Star
Monday, 14 April 2014

April 14--  A Special Education para-professional at J.R. Trippe Middle School is the latest Indian Star in the Vidalia City school system.

Patti Daniels was honored at the April meeting of the Vidalia school board for her efforts with the Toombs County Special Olympics held on Buck Cravey Field at Vidalia High School.

She says just seeing the reactions of the kids is what it's all about.

"You can tell just by seeing the smiles on their faces.  I appreciate being recognized but I told the school board I didn't do it for recognition, I did it because it made me happy.  

"I can't take recognition for myself because I had several people working with me and helping me and I was blown away this year," she said.

Patti worked as a substitute teacher with special ed students before her fulltime job at J.R. Trippe.

"It warms my heart to hear them say 'I know now what you're trying to tell me,' it's what I call an 'aha' moment," she says.

She thanked the 60 sponsors who supported the Special Olympics this year.  Here's the list.
