On May 12 Mrs. Mitchell received her Master’s  in Special Education from the College of St. Joseph. The commencement speaker, William Shouldice IV current CBO (Chief Bear Officer) of the Vermont Teddy Bear Company, gave each graduate a beautiful bear and the direction to give the bear to someone who helped the graduates “get here today”. Mrs. Mitchell chose Mrs. Hayes. Mrs. Mitchell explained: “I chose to give my bear to Mrs. Hayes, for all of the wonderful learning opportunities that she provides to the students of Leicester School in and beyond the classroom.  For always treating the students and staff with respect and kindness and doing whatever needs to be done without question or complaint.  She is a team player who inspires creativity, compassion, and community service.”
