The faculty and staff at Mapleton Junior High are amazing. The choice was very difficult because every teacher here at Mapleton makes a difference in the lives of the students we teach. I have been told that the person I am nominating has never received the Spirit of the Mustang, even with all his years here at Mapleton Junior High. He quietly goes about doing his work and changing the lives of the students.
