  2. Lucy Hargrett was the one teacher that stood out in my life that made a difference. I am thrilled to see how far she has taken her knowledge and how many lives she has touched. I hope to meet up with her again one day to thank her for taking the time for me during my early highschool days in Jesup, Ga. She actually opened her home to me during some of my darkest days. Yay for you, Ms. Hargrett!! Hi to McKee as well!
