Western Heritage Schools Outreach Program writes: Each year the Western Heritage Schools Outreach Program volunteers have the opportunity to nominate one educator who has facilitated our outreach to the schools, who exemplifies the qualities of a true mentor to his/her students, and who has gone above and beyond to support their students. Congratulations to our own principal, Sue Shepard, who was voted as the Cochise Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering’s Educator of the Year by the WHSOP volunteers. She will be recognized at the Gathering on Sunday February 4th at 1:00 pm at Buena HS.
