Music that Describes Gabe

Gabe Catalano was nominated by her colleague, Tamara Nemeth.

Mrs. Catalano has been the nurse at Rogers City Elementary School for approximately four years. She has made a great impact on the families and staff with her patience and knowledge. She has equipped her district with thorough training in emergency medicine, safety precautions and first aid.

"When I asked one our students what she loved most about Mrs. Catalano, she said, 'Everything is great about her,'" said Nemeth. "She is loving, nurturing, patient, faithful, trustworthy, and a great communicator. She is confident in her ability, yet walks in humility. Many times, I have walked into her office and have seen her patiently tending to her kiddos' needs...nosebleeds, upset stomachs, asthma, diabetes and bruises. I often feel like we don't recognize the gift we have in having such a wonderful nurse who cares greatly for our kids and community."

"Mrs. Catalano stands in adversity and has a song in her heart. She does not give up, no matter what hardship she's facing. She stands strong in character and kindness," said Nemeth. "Mrs. Catalano is truly a wonderful example of strength and love to our Huron family."
