                Goodbye to the Jobst Family!  

The adult clients and staff threw a farewell party for our friends, Pastor Jim and Mrs. Vivian Jobst,  on August 16th.  Pastor Jim is the former pastor at Faith Lutheran Church, and the Jobst's have participated in our singing programs and volunteered for many events.  We will miss them, but wish them the best of everything in their new home in Minnesota.  



     Bridget "Shell" Gulley  


         July 9, 1983-July 11, 2017

With great sadness, we said goodbye to our dear friend, co-worker, and MSS family member, Bridget "Shell" Gulley, after a brave battle with cancer.  Bridget began at Magnolia Specialized Services on 1/6/2005 working as a teacher for children ages 3 to 5 who have special needs.  In addition, Bridget drove a van to transport the children and adults to school every day. Bridget was loved by all, and made a difference in the lives of many                                                                    children in her twelve years.  Bridget is missed by all,                                                                      and will be forever in our hearts. 


       Kathy was in the house!
Staff and Clients alike enjoyed a visit from a special friend in early August. Kathy Ardoin, former classroom teacher and choir director, traveled all the way from Las Vegas, Nevada. The adult clients were more than a little excited to see her!
