I was deeply saddened to hear today of the passing of my good friend, Helen Welch. I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Welch when I served as Principal of Paintsville Elementary School and then when I became Superintendent of Paintsville Independent, I asked Mrs. Welch to come and work with us in the Superintendents office, and she did. I had not seen Mrs. Welch in several years and during the Holiday Season around Christmas, her granddaughter and I surprised her with a visit. I got the best hug I had ever gotten when she saw me. As long as I live I will never forget this lady. I loved her so much and I had the utmost respect for her. Helen Welch was and will always be one of the best. May this lady Rest In Peace.
