  • One of Our Finest Retires…

    Ms. Rhonda Stover has taught for 30 years in McDowell. Most of her time teaching was at Welch Elementary. Ms. Stover would always offer a smile and encouraging words, to not only students but also co-workers daily. Rhonda’s love for learning and her students coupled with her positive attitude influenced a great many! Her ability to find the good in people is one lesson we can all stand to learn. We will miss her ,and we hope all her future dreams come true. Thank you for all you have done for our kids, Ms. Stover! Enjoy you well deserved retirement!
