The teacher who had a special love for reading now has a special place in her honor at the school she loved.
In May, members of the late Kathy Emory’s family, colleagues and friends dedicated the Miss Kathy Emory Outdoor Reading Classroom at McDonald Green Elementary School.
Emory died Dec. 24, 2010, after battling colon cancer for more than two years. She was 52.
Emory served on the McDonald Green staff for more than 30 years as a fourth grade teacher and media specialist.
