Mary Rowe, 7th Grade Teacher

The Roanoke Rapids Graded School District Board of Education started a new program this month to honor outstanding staff members. Our very own Mary Rowe is the first recipient of the "Apple of Excellence" Award. This is her 24th year in the classroom. Thanks for all you do for the children of this community. Thanks to Hockaday Funeral & Cremation Service and Always in Bloom Florist for donating the gifts for Ms. Rowe.
