In honor of National Custodian Day, we applaud Mary Anna Lowe, Head Custodian at the Advanced Learning Center. Mary Anna has worked at the building since 2007 and within the Nebo School District for twelve and a half years. Originally from Evanston, Wyoming, Mary Anna and her husband (who works at Taylor Elementary) currently reside in Payson where they have five llamas, four dogs, and one mule. Mary Anna, mother to three children, enjoys sewing, piece quilting, hunting, camping and caring for her eleven grandchildren. In fact, Mary Anna is featured in a youtube video where she shot her first mule deer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZcHKCBlgWA&list=PLD35F6BA5EA40CC90
When asked what she likes most about working at ALC, she responded, “The people. This building has gone through so many changes through the years. It is fun to meet and get to know new people and see people I used to work with at Spring Lake Elementary occasionally.”
Principal Alan Ashton made the following statement: "Mary Anna cares about people. That is what makes the difference. Because she cares, the building is always taken care of. She is without a doubt, one of the hardest working people I have worked with in my twenty-year career as an educator."
The staff and students of ALC sure appreciate all that Mary Anna does here. ALC would not be the same without her. We love you, Mary Anna!
