WHAT MAKES HER SPECIAL: "Last academic year, 'M&M' had the highest average in her class, but just as important to me, M&M guided me to her house at 7 p.m. from her school, Monte Sano, after we became separated from her mom while attempting to follow. Being 'directionally challenged' and only my second visit, I was truly lost. With M&M's expert guidance, we arrived safely," her grandmother Loretta J. Burgest said.
