Condolence from Anonymous on February 24th, 2011 12:00 am

LaVerta was a remarkable teacher/librarian at Saint Mary’s High School. I was privileged to be her principal. She succeeded in transforming a large room with books into a real learning center. The thing that made her so effective was that she was first and foremost a teacher. She saw her work as a librarian as a means of instructing not just students but the staff as well. She was always helping teachers. She loved her work; she loved all of the students and faculty. She left a legacy, a standard of excellence, for Saint Mary’s.
