Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Carolee Vanness, a 1st and 2nd grade teacher at Sacred Heart Catholic School, L’Anse, Michigan, is the latest recipient of Portage Health Foundation’s Superior Educators award. Read more here.

Those who know her at Sacred Heart School had this to say about her. “Sister Carolee is a warm and generous person with 46 years of teaching experience. She is always the first person at school in the morning and many times the last to leave at night. Her hands are always ready to help if there is a need and many times she helps before a need is known. She pours her life and love into her vocation and work and is a true example of selfless devotion to others.”

Sister Carolee commented on the award. “Many thanks for your warm messages of congratulations! I’m not much for being in the limelight… but what an honor and I thank the Lord for allowing me to be His instrument. Hopefully, this last quarter of the school year will be the best ever! Have a truly Holy Week! You’ll be remembered in prayer specially.”
