Music that Describes Mary

Mary Patterson was nominated by her friend, Tammy Cope.

Ms. Patterson worked at the Martinsville Library as the reference librarian for about a year and a half.  She was promoted to branch manager shortly before her position became available at Martinsville High School.  

“Mary knew her passion had always been to work in the school system,” explains Cope.  “Each day, Mary faces new challenges, but her goal is to always move forward with a positive attitude and continue to stress the importance of reading to every student.”
