(Franklin, GA) — Heard County High School receptionist, Lori Cabe has been nominated for the 2017-2018 national LifeChanger of the Year award.

Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, the national LifeChanger of the Year program recognizes and rewards the very best K-12 public and private school educators and employees across the United States who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.

Rodney Kay, Superintendent and former Heard High principal made the nomination because of the years of dedication that Lori Cabe has given to Heard High.

“Lori has devoted her working life to helping kids and serving adults, and in terms of being a ‘LifeChanger’, I’m not sure that anyone deserves this more,” says Kay. “She jumped in with both feet when we started a mentoring program and truly did change lives, and she continues to support students whenever and wherever she can. We are blessed to have her as part of our school system.”
