Congratulations to Mrs. Juanita Drue for being recognized by Z100 radio as a Southern Illinois Hometown Hero.  Mrs. Drue was recognized for her outstanding leadership and tireless efforts in helping the students and families at Unity Point.  She is our social worker and interacts with many students, families, and teachers throughout her day. She was one of over 150 individuals to be nominated. We are proud to say that out of that pool of individuals, Mrs. Drue was selected to be part of Z100's Southern Illinois Heroes calendar to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Mrs. Drue is Miss April 2015! We are very fortunate to have Mrs. Drue at our school and we congratulate her on this honor.
