Phrashunda Hudson was nominated by a member of the community who wishes to remain anonymous.
Ms. Hudson is an educator who runs her class like a family. She takes the time to listen to people and ask them how they are doing. This year, Ms. Hudson created work experiences and helped students open bank accounts, get ID cards, and prepare for life after graduation.
"The moment we step in the building, we become family, and she will do anything to help us," the nominator said. "We love her and she loves us."
