    It was my pleasure to know Shelby when we were students at Peabody, and later when our paths crossed when I was appointed principal of H.G. Hill School. Shelby was a cornerstone of establishing that school and was an outstanding teacher there until her retirement. I was no longer there, but knew that Shelby continued to volunteer at H.G. Hill. She was always a capable professional willing to assist others in their work. She had a special magic with young children.

    I regret that I missed the announcement of Shelby’s passing or I would have visited Jerry and family to express my condolences. Hers was a life well-spent and her influence will be felt for a long time. Peace be with you.
