Every year, students in Jennifer Longworth’s second-grade class could count on a handmade gift at the holidays.
The boys received stocking hats, while the girls got scarves. Longworth spent the entire year knitting up to 30 gifts.
The items were a point of pride among her past students, who wore the hats and scarves for years after receiving them.
Southwest Elementary School Principal Beth Guilfoy thought that extraordinary generosity to her students helps illustrate the kind of person that Longworth was.
