Lucille began her teaching career as a kindergarten teacher and later became the principal of an elementary school near the city she lived in. The impact and reach she had with her students and those that worked with her was powerful.
In addition to her impact on the school district, Lucille was a dedicated grandmother, always inspiring her grandchildren to be good people and get an education. She didn’t care what it was in, just as long as they were passionate about it.
