I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Dr. Satchel. My family is Blessed to have her as our Superintendent of the Colbert County Schools. Our granddaughter, Aria Maria, suffers from a very rare Syndrome called FOX G 1, When it was time to enroll her in Pre-K, other school systems did not want to enroll her because of the extra expenses that she would require Then we heard of Leighton Elementary School. Dr. Satchel found out about Aria and she told us: "We want Aria!!". We told Dr. Stachel that Aria might require an attendant, Dr Satchel replied, we will get an attendant for Aria!!. We continue to describe some of Aria's needs, Dr. Satchel replied" " We will get whatever Aria needs!!" Aria is thriving and loves her school. I would like for everyone to see how much Love they bestow on my Little Angel. I will forever be in debt to all her teachers, Kristen, Elizabeth, Melissa, her attendants, Miss Ashley, Miss Liza, Miss Courtney, Miss Sandra, her Principal, Mrs. Ozbirn, and especially to Doctor Satchel. Her leadership is wonderful, her goals are what we need, and her vision is commendable. Allow me to take this opportunity to ask all my friends and all the citizens of Colbert County to re-elect Dr. Satchel again and again. She is More Precious Than Gold!!

If what you're saying is true, it's sad. Every child deserves a chance to succeed - regardless of personal conditions. Kudos to the Colbert County School System!
