January 2011 Winner

Mrs. Diane King Mrs. Diane King

Mrs. Diane King

Eastern Correctional Institution

Westover, MD

Nomination: "First let me say that I'm sure this letter comes as a big surprise, but without any doubt this letter is from the deepest sincerity. If there is anyone who surely deserves any kind of recognition for such hard work and very deservant of this is the G.E.D. teacher of the Eastern Correctional Institution Department of Education Eastside, Mrs. Diane King. You see she helps some of the most difficult people in the State receive their G.E.D. almost every month with a success rate of nearly 100% since becoming a teacher at the prison. For a woman around 5'1" with a slight southern accent and respected by all who encounter her presence, she is someone who should be honored for everyone she helps to reform daily. Not everyone can do this job, but she comes in everyday with her bright smile and ears open to all who has a story to tell. Well, believe me there are a lot of stories told. I believe it takes a person of great patience and understanding to love their job as much as she does. Without her, most men here would likely falter, but she keeps us going and gives us goals to shoot for and finally obtain. Would you please consider her for a very important story to your broadcast? She is very much appreciated by all who encounter her. She's loved and respected by her students."
