Pat Magut is one of the coolest 74-year-olds ever. That's what the six boys who crowded around her Friday in their fifth-grade classroom at Meadowside School think. Full Story

What a great program and what a pleasure to read about it! In a world with so much violence, it is a heart-warming experience to read this. Great job, mentors!

Celina Sandor deserves the highest praise for this wonderful program. Both seniors and students benefit from time spent together in her classroom.

My question is why this program is not duplicated in other classrooms and schools around our town. Seems to me all students would benefit from it and more seniors wouls gladly donate their time.

Kudos Ms Sandor!

Celine Sandor is, indeed, one of the best people I know. Smart, compassionate, dedicated -- she is wonderful. She begins each class with "Today we're going on a journey..." and follows it with the lesson of the day. How inspirational! My own daughter had Ms. Sandor -- and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. My daughter was also a participant in the very first Senior Citizen's Mentoring program a few years back -- an experience she still talks about to this day.
Keep up the great work, Celine! We love and miss you!
