ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A senior at Westover High School dedicated his final Eagle Scout project to a teacher he says changed his life and the lives of so many others.
Mrs. Kathy Nelson taught for thirty years. Five of those years she spent teaching at the L.I.F.E Gifted Center in Albany. She lost her battle with cancer in 2007.
Thursday, soon to be Eagle Scout Jordan Cox, held a dedication ceremony for "Kathy's Garden" at the Gifted Center where Mrs. Nelson taught Cox for two years.
Cox spent months planning and designing the garden that will serve to honor his favorite teacher.
"Mrs. Nelson was definitely inspirational. Not only to me but to every student in my class and I'm pretty sure every class after me," said Jordon Cox.
"She always wanted the children to do their very best and to reach their full potential," said Mr. Robert Nelson, her husband.
Jordon Cox made sure the garden had a plenty of "Georgia Bulldog" touches. He says Mrs. Nelson was a huge UGA football fan. Cox also asked for her husband's help picking out specific flowers he knew she loved. The garden will also serve as an outdoor classroom at the DCSS Gifted Center.
