“Purnell is a person that goes above and beyond the call of duty,” the school system said in honoring her. “She works hard to help implement a positive and safe learning environment for our scholars. She plays a very important role daily in making sure the school’s transportation system works smoothly. She greets scholars with a smile every morning and afternoon. She is a true team player.”   

Purnell is often called upon by school administration to complete various tasks and she does it with a smile. “She eagerly assists teachers and students with small group activities, checking papers, putting up bulletin boards throughout the building, and laminating materials. You name, she does it. Ms. Purnell has been a dedicated and hard worker for the past 30-plus years and continues to take great pride in her job. Working with Ms. Purnell is truly an honor, and she not only has a passion for Weldon Elementary Global Academy but she demonstrates a passion for Weldon City Schools.”
