School’s 5K run to benefit track teams

Published: Monday, April 15, 2013 at 05:20 PM.

In addition to supporting school sports, the event will honor the memory of former school employee Annelise Adams.

‘The most giving and positive person’

Adams started her career with the district as a school bus driver in 1995.

In 1998, she became the now defunct Richbourg Middle School’s attendance receptionist. She transitioned, along with other staffers, to Shoal River Middle School in 2009.

The mother of two died in 2010 from cancer.

Assistant principal Lee Martello — who worked with Adams at Richbourg and Shoal River — said she remembers Adams’ courteousness, generosity and cheerful disposition.

"She would always greet all of the students when they came in off the bus in the morning," Martello said.
