In Memory of Wendy Suarez


Wendy Suarez, assistant principal at Jessie P. Miller Elementary in Bradenton, passed away as a result of an auto accident near Okeechobee last Friday. She was described as an inspirational leader, dedicated to the students of her school.

Suarez, 41, was a counselor at Harlee Middle School, as well as an administrator at Braden River, Daughtrey, Witt, Palmetto, and Tillman Elementary schools before coming to Jessie P. Miller in January of 2011. She will be missed deeply by students, parents, co-workers, family and friends.
