When I think of principals I only think of Mrs. Chiles. She was always smiling, always had such a sparkling personality, and a big heart for her students. My condolences to you and your family, Kellie.

Such sweet memories of growing up together & worshipping @Airport Baptist Church. We walked together down the isle to tell Bro Bill Brown we were saved & wanted to be baptized. I know God will bless her extra in heaven as he did on earth.
