Susan Hight, Bothell

I am nominating this person not only because she is my sister but because she is a beautiful human being.

She is a fierce force of nature doing everything she can to take care of all the children who enter her home and out in the community. I am proud of her with her confidence, perseverance and dedication. She has really held her head high. I appreciate her approach to manage things at home as well as work.

A person like her deserves heartfelt appreciation for everything she does.

Nominator: Dayjah Hight
