SNSD Congratulates Mrs. Lauralyn Ramsey on her retirement!

Mrs. Ramsey graduated from Ouachita Baptist University with a BA in Commercial Art. She also attended an extra semester for the student teaching part to be certified for Art K-12.

Mrs. Ramsey started out as a substitute teacher at Norphlet High School for 6 weeks until she started working at Old Union High School where she taught art and a few elementary classes as well for 2 years.

Mrs. Ramsey has been at Smackover for the past 34 years teaching Elementary Art. She first started out at Smackover with “Art on a Cart” until a building was moved in for her to hold her art classes in.

Mrs. Ramsey has been encouraged in so many ways by all her co-workers and she said she has “been so blessed and grateful to have had the privilege” to work at Smackover.

Lauralynn Ramsey will be missed in our Smackover Elementary Hallways. She is one of a kind!
