such as teacher, leader, and often parent volunteer on

Lynn Moss is a legend here in the community of Erath. I
know this to be true as she was my biology teacher when
I was here at Erath High School before her leadership
role of principal."
He continued by stating "Her knowledge of the
students (and their families) is respected and admired.
She has the compassion of a mother, and the dignity of a
teacher and principal. My own entrance into the
principal role here at EHS was successful in part due to
the support she gave me as our campus’ are connected
and her students become my EHS students. Her role at
EMS set a magnanimous stage for the students
transitioning from middle school to high school.
Turner ended saying, "Mrs. Moss is known to be fair,
witty and warm. It is my pleasure to know her as a
friend and mentor – we are thrilled that she will serve
as the 2014 EHS Homecoming Parade Marshall."
