Our newest Knight is an exceptional counselor and valued member of the JMAC team. Whether she is helping students complete college and scholarship applications or teaching school counseling curriculum in classes, Mrs. Byrd always gives our students her best. She is a compassionate and caring woman who nurtures our students with both hope and realism. When asked to take on extra tasks, Mrs. Byrd does not know how to say “NO”. She spends much of her personal time on projects and programs beneficial to our students because there simply isn’t enough time to finish between 8 and 4. If you have ever tried to talk to Mrs. Byrd alone, you will find this difficult because she is usually surrounded by students needing her assistance. Somehow she finds time to make her students feel valued and to get incredible amounts of work done. Mrs. Byrd exemplifies the JMAC Knight because she is caring, honest, and willing to stand up and protect our students as she prepares them for their futures. We are honored to give Lisa Byrd the title of Lady Knight Byrd.
– Nominated by and also in the words of Mrs. Ellen Makowski, Guidance Counselor
