Generally when we think of school, we look back on memories cemented in the brick and mortar buildings where we attended elementary, middle and high school. But, the most important work inside those buildings takes place in the hearts and minds of the students, teachers, administrators, aides, bus drivers and cafeteria staff.

So whether you attended West or Graff, South, Laurel Middle School, Laurel High School, Park City or Joliet Schools, or went someplace else completely, the memories of a favorite teacher or an aide or a playmate who inspired you to further studies or to work in a certain field, or just to persevere, are probably some of the brightest. The Laurel Outlook and the businesses on these pages SALUTE all those who influence, encourage, teach and cheer on our children.

In these times especially, when every encounter could potentially lead to infection or quarantine, the brave men, women and children who go to work and school each day to ensure that we will all have a brighter future, that the youngsters of today will grow into capable adults, is more important than ever. Thank you for all you do!

Special thanks to Laurel’s Superintendent Dr. Linda Filpula for going above and beyond the call of duty. She has been filling in at West School this week because of a teacher shortage.
