    Neosho’s 2019 May Day Mom Announced

    Mary Galington has been selected as the 2019 “MAY DAY MOM”.  Mrs. Galington was nominated by her son Justus, a 3rd grade student in Mrs. Allen’s class at Carver Elementary.  After reading Justus’s essay, we have no doubt that Mrs. Galington would benefit from a little pampering and we are so excited to honor her. Justus wrote the following essay, which was chosen out of 500 entries by our special committee:
     “My Mary Mom is the greatest mom because she takes care of nine kids. She expects my best. She takes me places I have never been like Silver Dollar City. She has a big heart.”

    Honorable Mention was awarded to:
    Julie Williams, Mother of Whitley Williams, 3rd grader at Benton Elementary
    Ellie Wright, Mother of Lillie Woods, 3rd grader at South Elementary
