A good friend, teacher
Our friend and teacher Kathy Hallingstad passed away Dec.18, 2007, in an Albuquerque, N.M., hospital after complications from diabetes.
Kathy was a special education teacher at Little Snake River Valley School in the 1990s. Teaching was the love of Kathy's life, and she felt each of her students were special. She always saw the good in each of them and hoped she'd have a positive impact on their lives in order to be successful.
Kathy will be remembered by her friends in Baggs for riding her three-wheel bicycle around town after work and on the weekends. She loved her dogs and her horse.
Kathy also was a bird watcher and loved to hear the sounds of their singing. When Kathy lost her sight, it was hard for her not being able to drive and travel around the states. She once told her friend Kathy (Caracena) Luna that she would never have left Baggs if it had not been for her health.
She waited too long to drive back for a visit but had her happiest memories while she lived in Baggs.
Herold is Honored Alum
The student council has announced its Honored Alumni for 2008.
This year's big winner is longtime valley resident Braddy Herold. Herold was honored during the Farson basketball game Wednesday.
Herold has two children who attend school at LSRV, a daughter, Brittany, and son, Blake. Both of his children are active in sports, and Herold can be found in the stands cheering at every game, no matter if it is girls or boys, junior high or high school.
Herold often donates his time, money and efforts to LSRV. He donates to the FFA in the form of funds and scrap metal. Herold also has donated his cooking talents to a multitude of school activities including junior and senior banquet and eighth-grade promotion. The Student Council and the whole school were honored to award Braddy Herold for his contributions within the school and thank him sincerely for everything he has done for the students and staff.
