WLOX Editorial: Thank you for your hard work and dedication

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - A recent celebration in Ocean Springs deserves acknowledgment. The celebration was not for a birthday or anniversary; nor for a milestone or scoring achievement.  At least not in the traditional way.

This celebration was for being among the best for a very important job. The job? In this case it was a third grade teacher. The Ocean Springs Education Foundation honored Melanie Howell as teacher of the year.

She scores very high with her students. Congratulations to Melanie Howell. Thank you for your hard work and dedication as you inspire young students to learn and make a difference.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
