I have known Jackie since she started her art career at Rockbridge Elementary School. She had always been the best. She puts 100% into everything she does. Two of my three kids had her as their art teacher. I used to sub in her class and have many stories of our friendship. Jackie is truly deserving if this honor and many more. Congrats
