  • A’head’ of the curve

    Kaylee Hughes was a mix of emotions as two stylists starting making several ponytails with her hair. This was the first time she participated in St. Baldrick’s, and she admitted to being a little nervous.

    Brown was named the 2013 Outstanding Educator by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce. Receiving the award was a complete surprise to her, but it doesn’t take long talking to her to realize why she’s worthy of the title.
    Teaching is not just a job to her - it’s a passion.
