    What a wonderful experience for Brookwood Elementary School student Lily Jacobs and a group of BES teachers! BES Special Education Key Teacher Callie Miller recently ran the Tuscaloosa Half Marathon while pushing Lily, her student of three years. Ms. Miller and Lily were joined by BES Library Media Specialist Jolynn Fenton, Music Teacher Amber Hartley, and Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative specialist Kim West (also a former BES teacher). At the end, Ms. Miller helped Lily walk across the finish line.
    Their participation in the half marathon was in conjunction with Ainsley’s Angels. This non-profit organization helps ensure everyone can experience endurance events, and builds awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. Congratulations to Lily and her teachers on achieving such a meaningful accomplishment together!
